The REACH: The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts
Named The us’s Best Architect by Time magazine in 2001 “for buildings that satisfy the spirit in addition to the eye,” Steven Holl is known for an experimental approach to architecture that may be at once romantic, humanistic, and resplendently brand new. Ranging around the globe, his multifarious body of work-including the Kiasma Museum of Up to date Art in Helsinki, Finland; Beijing Looped Hybrid, an apartment complex in China; and the highly anticipated Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City-demonstrates a profound appreciation for the subtleties, power, and possibilities implicit in the materials of his trade: light, space, form; concrete, steel, glass. Marked by what has been referred to as a “unique husbandry of space” (Time), Holl’s work invites the participation of the observer in a joyful celebration of light and shadow, a festival through which movement becomes integral, where clouds passing through the night sky interact with shifting planes of heaven-bound glass. Steven Holl: Architecture Spoken offers the reader unprecedented get admission to to the thought processes and work of this groundbreaking, state-of-the-art architect through his own words-and more than 300 sumptuously photographed illustrations.
