Curated and produced by PLANE—SITE, this video series features interviews with prominent architects reflecting on the topics of TIME SPACE EXISTENCE, part of the 2016 collateral program at the Venice Architecture Biennale, hosted by the Global Art Affairs Foundation. The diverse roster of accomplished architects includes Denise Scott Brown (USA), Peter Eisenman (USA), Curtis W. Fentress (USA), Meinhard von Gerkan (Germany), Dirk Hebel (Switzerland), Frei Otto (Germany), and Wong Mun Summ and Richard Hassell (Singapore). The series was originally composed for viewing for the duration of the TIME SPACE EXISTENCE exhibition, but now continues to seek out the unique perspectives of accomplished architects on these universal architectural topics.
PLANE—SITE visited the office of Fentress Architects in Denver, Colorado (USA) to speak with founder Curtis W. Fentress. Drawing from his wealth of experience in public architecture, the architect behind Los Angeles International Airport and Denver International Airport reveals the intricacies involved in creating spaces within highly constrained environments that must respond to heavy traffic and global travel, as well as ever-changing technological and environmental conditions.
