Storyline

"Steven Holl: The Body in Space" explores the career of the innovative, highly renowned American architect. In this portrait Holl presents some of his most acclaimed works, including the Makuhari Housing Complex in Chiba, Japan and the Chapel of St. Ignatius in Seattle. Centered around the completion of Holl's Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, the film observes his process and reasoning throughout the duration of the project. Constantly creating through the concept of phenomenology, Holl infuses his work with his philosophy explaining, "Phenomenology, for me, is the study of essences, and I believe that architecture has the potential in the twenty-first century to put essences back into existence." (Steven Holl) Written by Michael Blackwood

Quotes

(Himself): We've all experienced inspiring conditions in nature where the light, the moonlight on the snow glows and one walks through a landscape and feels uplifted and euphoric over this condition of space and light and movement and textures. And I think that architecture really is the one art that has the opportunity to add this to our daily lives, and to, especially in the city, make this kind of condition of inspirational existence. I see it as a kind of urgent mission on that level.
