Urbanisms : working with doubt by Steven Holl( )

25 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contemporary urban development is increasingly characterized by a reliance on diagrams, maps, and graphs to convey the rational, statistical point of view of the professional urban planner. In his new book, Urbanisms, architect Steven Holl suggests that just as modern medicine has recognized the power of the irrational psyche, urban planners need to realize that the experiential power of cities cannot be completely rationalized and must be studied subjectively. With a selection of urban and architectural projects from his thirty-year practice, Holl stretches urban planning into the domain of uncertainty, from prose into poetry. Urbanisms examines how perception and the senses are intertwined with the material, space, and light of urban form."--Jacket
Questions of perception : phenomenology of architecture by Steven Holl( Book )

32 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Third printing of the classic A+U 1994 special edition covering the work of Holl, Pallasmaa, and, Perez-Gomez, titled Questions of Perception. Their three individual essays presented in the book, are thematically linked; each one tries to explain the role man's perception plays in architecture and also explores phenomenal accounts. In their original introduction, the authors write: "The endless cultural limitations and contradictions inherent in artistic work, revealed with impeccable clarity and logic by the critics' deconstructive theory, are ultimately of limited use for the generation of architecture. The architect must take a position, one that necessarily has ethical consequences, and for which words, a theoretical discourse is nevertheless indispensable
Pamphlet Architecture 31 : new Haiti villages by Steven Holl( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Holl attempts to answer these questions with his idea for "Dense-Pack Villages," a type of courtyard housing that could be built with recycled concrete from fallen buildings and steel and would be hurricane- and earthquake-resistant. Each "village" could house approximately 200 occupants, and the courtyards would be filled with greenery and fruit trees. Holl proposes that these houses use solar cells on their roofs to provide electricity, allowing the villages to potentially operate off the grid. Water can be supplied from desalinization plants in each village, and also from new reservoirs, replacing the outdated reservoirs that were destroyed in the earthquake

The Chapel of St. Ignatius by Steven Holl( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The jewel-like Chapel of St. Ignatius contains the essence of Holl's vision - his interest in the phenomenology of space, his passionate investigations of form and material, and his use of reflected light and color. This book functions as a journal in the life of this extraordinary building. From Holl's preparatory watercolor sketches, to design development and working drawing details, to construction shots showing the unique precast system, to a large photographic portfolio of the completed building, The Chapel of St. Ignatius reveals Holl's working method as well as the finished building. Essays by Steven Holl and client Gerald T. Cobb, S.J., introduce the book."--Jacket
Hariri & Hariri : essays by Kenneth Frampton( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hariri & Hariri exemplifies the spirit of the emerging generation of architects. Gisue Hariri and Mojgan Hariri, Iranian-born, Cornell-educated sisters, opened their New York City practice in 1986. At that time, writes esteemed architectural historian Kenneth Frampton, their work "first broke upon the New York scene, with the publication of a single spiral staircase executed in bent steel plate ... an archetypal modern image set in a different key." Since then, the Hariris have designed a great variety of projects that add tonal and thematic variation to the unique notes in that "different key." They are working, says one commentator, "in a twenty-first-century, space age mode." Thirty of their works are shown in this book, including a number of apartment renovations in New York, several houses throughout North America and Europe, competition entries (for both theoretical and commissioned projects), and custom furniture and lighting for many of the interiors, some of which are now in production. The projects are organized around a number of important themes that have influenced the design and practice of the architects: politics and power; global culture; new technology; gender and identity; composition, construction, and materiality; paradoxical reality; and otherness. The themes are also discussed in a dialogue between the Hariris that runs throughout the book, highlighting their philosophy and thoughts on architecture and contemporary culture: "What is important in terms of cultural connection is the spirituality of Eastern thinking, which we are evaluating in the West, or rather from which we are evaluating the West."--Front flap

Steven Holl : color, light, time by Jordi Safont-Tria( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Color Light Time sets out to examine the current work of New York-based architect Steven Holl, one of the most outstanding representatives of contemporary American architecture. For nearly three decades now, Steven Holl has developed his architectural idiom and his reflections on architecture with striking consistency. The success of his work can be attributed to its sculptural shaping, his interest in the poetics of space, color, light, and material, and his fascination with scientific phenomena. Numerous illustrations and three essays closely examine archetypical aspects of visual perception, which play an essential role in Holl's work

Storefront for art and architecture by Vito Acconci( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and German and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1993, the artist Vito Acconci and the architect Steven Holl were invited to redesign the facade of the Storefront for Art and Architecture in New York. Addressing the site's urban environment and its function as an art space - the gallery is located on the ground floor of a low building on the outskirts of Soho - Acconci and Holl created a versatile facade which may be opened up in different ways depending on the season, or function as an optical screen separating the inner space from the street. These diverse functions - responding to considerations of both inner and outer space, creating links and transparencies as well as establishing borders - provide for a constant flux of local and spatial relationships for both the interested viewer and the casual passerby. This new book, part of Hatje/Cantz's "Werkdokumente" series, documents Acconci and Holl's collaborative project with photographs by Paul Ott."--Jacket

Steven Holl : heart by Steven Holl( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and German and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HEART Herning Museum of Contemporary Art in Herning, Denmark is a new building designed by the renowned American architect Steven Holl. He showed a keen interest in the project, first of all because the museum owns a unique collection by the Italian conceptual arte povera-artist Piero Manzoni. In 1960 Manzoni was invited to Herning for the first time by Aage Damgaard, the owner of a well-known shirt factory. Aage Damgaard's interest in contemporary art resulted in a visionary model for cooperation between businesses and artists - and in founding a museum. Holl's complex structures are surrounded by a landscape of hills and ponds which fits in the environment. The single-story building, with its natural light and innovative roof construction, refers to the formal vocabulary of the factory opposite from the 1960s in the circular shape of a collar. From a bird's-eye perspective the new building recalls outstretched shirt sleeves and the in situ façade has a surface resembling a wrinkled white shirt
Building : Louis I. Kahn at Roosevelt Island by Barney Kulok( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In September 2011, Barney Kulok was granted permission to create photographs at the construction site of Louis I. Kahn's Four Freedoms Park in New York City, commissioned in 1970 as a memorial to Franklin D. Roosevelt. The last design Kahn completed before his untimely death in 1974, Four Freedoms Park remained an unrealized work by one of the masters of twentieth-century architecture. Forty years after the original commission, it was finally completed in 2012. Unbuilt is at once a historical record and a multilayered visual investigation of form and the subtleties of texture--elements that were of fundamental importance to Kahn's approach . As architect Steven Holl writes, "Kulok's photographs free the subject matter from a literal interpretation of the site. They stand as 'Equivalents' to the words about material, light and shadow that Louis Kahn often spoke
Horizontal skyscraper by Steven Holl Architects( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richly illustrated with photographs, drawings, and water colors, this book documents the design and construction of Steven Holl's most ambitious project to date. Commissioned as the headquarters for China's largest real estate holding company, the Vanke Center became that country's first LEED platinum building and is a culminating expression of Holl's quest to realize super green, hybrid buildings that combine living, working, cultural, and commercial programs while creating and preserving public urban spaces. Located in the rapidly developing and overcrowded region of Shenzhen, Holl's Horizontal Skyscraper defines and protects a public landscape, while also providing maximum views of the sea and the surrounding hillsides for Vanke employees. "The Vanke Center is a surreal hybrid--part building, part landscape, part infrastructure," wrote Nicolai Ourroussoff in The New York Times, "It demonstrates what can happen when talented architects are allowed to practice their craft uninhibited by creative restrictions."
