About the Architect
Steven Holl Architects (SHA)
Steven Holl Architects is a 35-person architecture and urban design office working globally as one office from two locations; New York City and Beijing. Founded in 1977, Steven Holl leads the office with partners Chris McVoy, Noah Yaffe, and Roberto Bannura.
Steven Holl Architects has realized architectural works in countries around the world, with extensive experience in the arts, campus and educational facilities, and residential work. With each project the firm explores new ways to integrate an organizing
idea with the programmatic and functional essence of a building. Rather than imposing a style upon different sites and climates, the unique character of a program and a site becomes the starting point for an architectural idea. While anchoring each work
in its specific site and circumstance, Steven Holl Architects endeavors to obtain a deeper beginning in the experience of time, space, light and materials. The materials of architecture communicate through resonance and dissonance, just as instruments
in musical composition, producing thought and sense-provoking qualities in the experience of a place. Extending this approach with ecological innovation, Steven Holl Architects is recognized for the ability to shape space and light with great contextual
sensitivity and to catalyze the unique qualities of each project to create a concept-driven design at multiple scales, from minimal dwellings, to university works, to new hybrid models of urbanism. Steven Holl Architects is internationally-honored with
architecture’s most prestigious awards, publications and exhibitions for excellence in design, including the Japan Art Association Praemium Imperiale Award for Architecture (2014), the Gold Medal of the AIA - American Institute of Architects (2012), the
RIBA Jencks Award (2010), the BBVA Foundation Frontiers of Knowledge Award (2009), the Grande Médaille d’Or from the French Academy of Architecture (2001), and the Alvar Aalto Medal (1998).
