‘An excellent primer on this quiet modernist’ – FX
‘A handsome and affordable collection ... good photography and drawings’ – Concrete Quarterly
Steven Holl is revered among architects and students for his quiet and consistent modernist buildings. His reputation among generations of students was cemented during his early tenure at Columbia University and his founding of Storefront for Art and Architecture, a gallery dedicated to the promotion of young architects in New York City.
With his embrace of computer technology, Holl made a smooth transition from the 1980s into the digital design era of the 1990s. At the same time, his practice expanded globally and his housing projects in Japan opened to international acclaim. Recently, the ultramodern design of his Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art earned high praise for its revitalizing influence on Helsinki’s city centre.
This monograph is the only book to document Holl’s full career, from his early houses of the 1970s to his latest designs for museums currently under construction.
