“A tactile relationship with architecture, a love of glimmering color, a contemplative sensibility…these qualities characterize Holl’s work more than any stylistic habit or signature move.”—Architect Magazine
Hear architect Steven Holl discuss his own work and ideas about architecture and design. Holl has achieved worldwide acclaim for his innovative, sensitive additions to existing buildings, like the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, as well as for his innovative designs for new buildings around the globe. In 2012, he was awarded the American Institute of Architects’ Gold Medal, the organization’s highest honor given in “recognition of a significant body of work of lasting influence on the theory and practice of architecture.” Recent projects include a sports complex for Columbia University, where Holl has taught for 30+ years, and the Nanjing Sifang Art Museum (China). Earlier this year, it was announced that Holl would design a major addition to the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.
