Idea and Phenomena: Steven Holl
The exhibition approaches the oeuvre of
this New York based architect, an outstanding exponent of contemporary
American architecture from different angels: watercolors and architectural
models visualize Holl's complex conceptional designing process, the presentation
of realized architectural projects moves phenomena of the interplay of
space, light and material into focus. Conceptually, the exhibition reaches
out beyond the common monographic presentation as it offers a reflexive
re-creation of architectural effort, the idea, and individual perception,
phenomena, which in effect permits an approach to architecture as such
and concentrates on the
architect's intentions. The exhibition was first shown at Architekturzentrum,
Wien in 2002.
March 8th - May 4th.
