Internationally recognized for his ability to blend space and light with great contextual sensitivity, architect Steven Holl achieves his award-winning designs by beginning each commission with a small watercolor exploring light, color, and form. Paintings help Holl create a concept-driven design that showcases the unique qualities of each project. This collection of watercolors, which are works of art themselves, includes his most recent projects, from the JFK Center for the Performing Arts expansion and Hunters Point Public Library to University College Dublin.

Steven Holl established Steven Holl Architects in New York City in 1977. Considered one of the most influential practitioners of his generation, Holl received the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum's National Design Award in Architecture in 2002. A year earlier, Time declared him America's Best Architect for "buildings that satisfy the spirit as well as the eye." He is a professor of architecture at Columbia University. His most recent book is Compression.
