Steven Holl is one of the foremost architects and master watercolorists. His architectural theory and practice have profoundly influenced the contemporary architecture field. He has always been sustaining an idea-driven architectural practice. As an advocate for phenomenology, Holl's works focus on the mind and the senses, orchestrate light and shadows, and bring nature into architecture. A distinctive genre of new work was seen in Holl's Chinese projects. These new projects embrace the reality of cities and confront the infrastructural, economic, and societal challenges they face.
This exhibition outlines three distinguishing aspects of how Holl makes architecture: thinking, building, and reflecting. It also adds a fourth part, City within a City, which discusses his solution towards urban problems. More than 100 exhibits, including watercolor drawings, models, and digital films, are grouped by topics. Together, they present and illustrate Holl's most representative architectural works in the past decades.
The exhibition is curated by Nina Stritzler-Levine and produced by Steven Holl Architects and Steven Myron Holl Foundation. The first exhibition was at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, State University of New York at New Paltz.
