Steven Holl (b. 1947 in Bremerton, WA) is for sure one of the most interesting American architects of our time.
Most of Holl’s works are an exemplar representation of the his multicultural background and capability to adapt to local contexts. A capability Holl also developed during his stays in Rome, and London during the 70s.
In a period marked by the rise of Deconstructivist design, Holl developed instead a personal vision of an architecture as a coherent “experience of time, space, light and materials”. Furthermore, Holl has always reserved a particular attention to the relationship between, and intertwining of, architecture and visual and performing arts, epitomized in the many museums, exhibitions, and special projects – such as the “T” space interdisciplinary gallery in Round Lake, NY – he designed in the course of over thirty years.
