Steven HollSteven Holl is considered one of America's most influential architects. His new book (due for publication on November 6 from Rizzoli) takes a close look at seven houses he has designed and offers the reader unprecedented access to the thought processes and work of this groundbreaking, cutting-edge architect through his own words and watercolors--and more than 100 photographs.

This volume features seven of his residential houses and looks at his approach to modernist suburban residences, including two new homes finished in 2017. Viewed as a collection, these houses serve to demonstrate the wide range of Holl's prodigious genius through lavish and striking photographs as well as Holl's own descriptions. Considered one of America's most important architects, Holl is recognized for his ability to blend space and light with great contextual sensitivity and to utilize the unique qualities of each project to create a concept-driven design. Time magazine declared Holl "America's Best Architect" for his "buildings that satisfy the spirit as well as the eye."

Steven Holl is the founder and principal of Steven Holl Architects in New York and the designer of all projects ongoing in the office. Steven Holl Architects, established in 1977, has won many awards and his work has been presented at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In 2001 France bestowed the Grande Médaille d'Or upon him, for Best Architect of the Academy of Architecture; and in the same year Time Magazine declared him "America's Best Architect" for his "buildings that satisfy the spirit as well as the eye." Holl has lectured and exhibited widely and has published numerous texts including Architecture Spoken (Rizzoli, 2007), Urbanisms: Working with Doubt (2009), and several others. Holl is a tenured professor in the Graduate School of Architecture and Planning at Columbia University and an architect in New York.
