The fifth installment in an interview series that explores the philosophical concerns of architects exhibiting at "TIME - SPACE - EXISTENCE," a collateral event at the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale, features architects Curtis W. Fentress of the global design firm Fentress Architects.

Fentress is known best for the design of the striking Denver International Airport with its fabric roof resembling white peaks against the mountains. The architect describes the challenges of this project as well other large-scale public buildings.

Reflecting the conceptual framework of the Global Art Affairs Foundation, the series explores the philosophical concerns of architects exhibiting at TIME SPACE EXISTENCE, part of the 2016 collateral programming at the Biennale Architettura 2016. The diverse roster 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). Curated and produced by PLANE—SITE, the video series will be on view for the duration of the TIME SPACE EXISTENCE exhibition. The series is produced by GAA Foundation with the support of the European Cultural Centre.
