Parallax

£24.99

Product description

As we learn in Parallax, Steven Holl's success comes from his sculptural form-making, his interest in the poetics of space, colour, and materiality, and his fascination with scientific phenomena. Holl reveals his working methods in this book, part treatise, part manifesto, and part, as Holl writes, "liner notes" to fifteen of his projects. Parallax traces Holl's ideas on topics as diverse as the "chemistry of matter" and the "pressure of light," and shows how they emerge in his architectural work: "criss-crossing" at the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, "duration" in the Palazzo del Cinema in Venice, "correlational programming" in the Makuhari housing in Japan. The result is a book that provides a personal tour of the work of one of the world's most esteemed architects. Parallax is designed by Michael Rock of the award-winning design firm 2x4.

Covers show some wear, boards not completely flush with spine but still a good copy.
