This is the second publication of Steven Holl's legendary watercolours, following 'Written in Water', 2002. 400 watercolours represent the creative process of this famous and influential American Architect. The watercolours show Holl's highly individual method, developed over many years and containing first ideas and sketches of all major projects. Holl is known for his sculptural architecture and his genuine use of light. Both qualities meet the characteristics of the watercolour-technique. This highly artistic work by an architect becomes spectacular at a time of changing working techniques in design - the lowtech attitude allows the artist to concentrate on inspiration and perception. The watercolours are juxtaposed by photographs of the built architecture and emphasize the crucial aspect of scale.
