The Steven Myron Holl Foundation and The Samuel Dorsky Museum collaborate to present Steven Holl: Making Architecture, an exhibition examining the work of one of the world’s foremost architects. This exhibition, part of the Dorsky Museum’s “Hudson Valley Master’s Series” will reveal Holl’s intricate and distinctive process of making architecture.
Through approximately one hundred models, related sketches, and other studies, nine projects by Holl will be featured including the Arts Building at Franklin and Marshall College, Pennsylvania; The Kennedy Center Expansion, Washington D.C.; and Maggie’s Cancer Care Center in London.
Steven Holl has realized numerous commissions from private houses to major urban projects. Despite the demands of a highly successful office, he has managed to maintain the integrity and quality of his work by resisting corporatization. His practice reveals an inextricable link between his art and architecture. The exhibition will reveal Holl's practice of drawing with watercolors and developing ideas through sculpture.
The show will highlight the process of making architecture through models, sculpture, and in photographs taken during the actual construction process as the particular qualities of space, light and materials emerge. A selection of digital films, his own writings, and writings about him will be on display to bring his practice into thoughtful focus. This section also considers the process of making in objects that are microcosms of Holl’s thought.
The exhibition will be on view at the Dorsky Museum from February 10th to July 15th, and will travel internationally beginning in 2019.
