This collection is a look through the microscope at the real fundamentals of our buildings, revealing the essential design techniques used by any architect, anywhere, anytime. Conceived by Rem Koolhaasand made with the Harvard Graduate School of Design, it is a primordial toolkitto understanding how seemingly stable elements are actually in constant evolution.


Elements of Architecturefocuses on the fragments of the rich and complex architectural collage. Window, façade, balcony, corridor, fireplace, stair, escalator, elevator: the book seeks to excavate the micro-narratives of building detail.The result is no single history, but rather the web of origins, contaminations, similarities, and differences in architectural evolution, including the influence of technological advances, climatic adaptation, political calculation, economic contexts, regulatory requirements, andnew digital opportunities. It’s a guide that is long overdue—in Koolhaas’s own words, “Never was a book more relevant—at a moment where architecture as we know it is changing beyond recognition.”


Derived, updated, and expanded from Koolhaas’s exhaustive and much-lauded exhibition at the2014 Venice Architecture Biennale, this is an essential toolkit to understanding the fundamentals that comprise structure around the globe. Designed by Irma Boom and based on research from the Harvard Graduate School of Design, the 2,600-page monographcontains essays from Rem Koolhaas, Stephan Trueby, Manfredo di Robilant, and Jeffrey Inaba;interviews with Werner Sobek and Tony Fadell(of Nest); and an exclusive photo essay by Wolfgang Tillmans.


In addition to comprehensively updated texts andnew images, this edition is designed and produced to visually (and physically) embody the immense scope of its subject matter:


Customsplit-spine binding: our printer modified their industrial binding machine to allow for the flexible, eight-centimeter thick spine

Contains a new introductory chapterwith forewords, table of contents, and an index, located in the middle of the book (where it naturally opens due to its unique spine)

Printed on 50g Opakal paper, allowing for theideal level of opacityneeded to realize Boom’s palimpsest-like design

Translucent overlaysand personal annotationsby Koolhaas and Boom are woven in each chapter to create an alternative, faster route through the book

Printed at the originally intended 100% size for full readability
