STEVEN HOLL

Chapel of St. Ignatius, Seattle, WA, 1997. Paul Warchol.
ARCHITECTURE DESIGN, 2002

Since 1976, Steven Holl (American, b. 1947) has been known for buildings that “satisfy the spirit as well as the eye” (Time magazine, 2001). His firm’s projects include a 220,000-square-meter multi-use complex in Beijing, a new marina in Beirut, and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, MO. Holl’s watercolors of the Nelson-Atkins project and the finished structure itself demonstrate the architect’s devotion to the sensitive crafting of space, materials, and light.
