Item description for Steven Holl: Written in Water by Steven Holl...
Built as a diary, the 365 watercolors reproduced in Written in Water represent the creative process of famed American architect Steven Holl. Holl's highly individual method of capturing in watercolors his initial ideas and sketches for all major buildings and competition projects was developed over many years. As an architect, Holl is known for the sculptural qualities he gives to structures and for his genuine use of light - two qualities which are in tune with the characteristics of the watercolor technique. Among the increasingly high-tech working methods common to his profession, Steven Holl's reliance on a highly artistic and resolutely low-tech process becomes spectacular and inspirational.
