Dutch starchitect Rem Koolhaas has been tapped to curate one of architecture's most high-profile events -- the Venice Architecture Biennale. Koolhaas will curate the 2014 edition of the Biennale, taking over from British architect David Chipperfield, who directed this year's edition.
Koolhaas' appointment was announced Tuesday by the Biennale's board of directors. Koolhaas heads the Office for Metropolitan Architecture, one of the most prominent architecture firms in the world. The firm has worked on many famous structures, including Seattle's Central Library and the CCTV building in Beijing.
