Steven Holl is one of the most celebrated and well-respected architects working today. His architectural work is widely recognized and covers extensive ground ranging from museums, educational facilities, residences, and much more – but it has been his carefully calculated sustainable design approach that has allowed his work to pervade with a poetic nature rarely seen in architecture today. Steven’s work has not only turned him into a central figure in the discussion of contemporary sustainable design, but has garnered him acclaim, not only from critics, but most notably, from his contemporaries. Although Steven doesn’t often grant interviews, on this rare event he was kind enough to sit down and give us his thoughts on individual style, green design, and even a little something about his childhood.
