Steven Holl Pretheoretical Ground

September 19, 1990 | Video Lecturer:

Steven Holl use his own work and work by others to discusses how lighting, space, typology, program, and materials can create “phenomenological effects” in architecture. He describes his approach to urbanism as using context to reinforce the concept of his design, especially when dealing with a site neighboring natural landscape. He ends by fielding questions about his work, the passion towards his work, and the way the economy shifts his office into different directions.

Holl reads from this text while displaying accompanying images and diagrams to illustrate his intentions. He finally presents his project for a large site on the outskirts of Milan which incorporates many programmatic concepts and organizational methods of gradiated density.

Steven Holl To Invent An American Vernacular

October 26, 1983 | Video Lecturer:
Introduction by:

The lecture title refers to the struggle between making architecture as an autonomous art and making architecture as a cultural statement. Holl infuses his projects with American vernacular manifested through building typology, which allows him to both acknowledge building traditions and elevate their elements to the level of architecture. The Pamphlet Architecture series, which was founded by Steven Holl is aimed at giving young architects an opportunity to explain and discuss their ideas. In this lecture Holl outlines several residential projects in which he resolves issues of proportion, and other relationships within the project while consciously employing the building typology to signal that the projects are rooted in American tradition.
