About this talk

Running time: 29 minutes

American architect Steven Holl trained at the University of Washington and the Architectural Association, London. He set up his own practice Steven Holl Architects in New York City in 1976. His work includes the Kiasma Contemporary Art Museum in Helsinki, Finland (1998), Simmons Hall at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts (2002) and the Storefront for Art and Architecture, New York City (a collaboration with the artist Vito Acconci, 1993).

His more recent projects reflect an interest in a phenomenological approach to architecture. In this talk he discusses three buildings: The Bloch addition to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri (2007), his much-praised mixed-use Linked Hybrid complex in Beijing China (2009), and the Horizontal Skyscraper, officially titled the Vanke Center in Shenzhen, China (2009).
