The Brooking goes to Venice

The 14th Architecture Biennale in Venice was launched in June 2014 with the Brooking National Collection’s display on the history of windows at the heart of it, where it was seen by over 200,000 people. This set of pages dedicated to the Brooking’s contribution to the event contains galleries of pictures. There are links to some of the internet material available on the News page.

Charles Brooking attended the very successful launch in June. A team of supporters and sponsors went with him. They took some of the strain of dealing with the high level of interest that his 'wall of windows' generated from across the globe.

Further pages:

The Venice Display” features pictures of  the display taken by Charles and his team.

On “People & the Display” you can see how  some visitors reacted to the Display (and to Charles).

Rem & the Display” shows something of Rem Koolhaas’s visits to the Display.

For a change, “Charles sees Venice” features some of the pictures that Charles Brooking took while he was in Venice (when he found the time). Not surprisingly windows featured highly in this.

You can also take a look at a video “Windows into Venice” on the Collection's preparations for the event, and another in which Rem Koolhaas praises the contribution of the Collection to the Biennale.

A Catalogue of the windows displayed is also available.
