Hollein disclaims any affinity with a specific tradition or heritage, but admits being influenced in his early life in Vienna by exposure to Otto Wagner and Josef Hoffmann. Hollein describes a momentary desire to leave Vienna, seeing the scene as too provincial, and describes his travels in Sweden and the United States. He stresses the vastness of the landscape of the U. S. and his fascination with movement. On one trip he traveled from coast to coast as quickly as possible in order to understand the immensity of the distance.
