"I definitely believe in ideas driving a design, and that makes me different from the people who pretend to be phenomenologists. I am very different from them: you must have an idea to drive a design. I am much closer to Peter Eisenman or Zaha Hadid than I am to Zumthor. Le Corbusier always had an idea; and so did Louis Kahn. That's for me enormously important. I also believe that you don't need to know what that idea is to appreciate a building."
—Steven Holl in Architectural Review

"This volume treats Holl as one of the greatest living architects... this is a well-illustrated must-have for stents of the architect's work."

"This is one for inspiration."
