Steven Holl

Architect Steven Holl is one of the great designers today. I have studied some of his buildings and I think that he is one of my favorite architects. His design of the addition to Rapson Hall is an inspirational building to study in. The space created is in opposition to the old building and represents that in plan. Also the use of light makes the building look much bigger from the inside than it actually is. In eliminating the corners by putting windows in their place the space is filled with light and therefore stays bright and appears bigger. The use of light is also beautiful from outside. At night the building has a glow that really sets it apart from its surroundings. The building really expresses itself best at night.
