Steven Holl


Architect Steven Holl was named as “America’s Best Architect” by Time Magazine in 2001. Holl’s phenomenological approach (man’s existential bodily engagement with his/her surroundings) can be found in a book of essays he co-wrote with Juhani Pallasmaa and Alberto Perez-Gomez, in Questions of Perception: Phenomenology of Architecture. Holl’s Whitney Water Purification Facility and Park won the 2007 Top Ten Green Projects from AIA/COTE.
