Steven Holl: 1st Raimund Abraham Memorial Lecture (March 2, 2011)

This lecture commemorates architect Raimund Abraham, who was teaching at SCI-Arc at the time of his death in 2010. In a talk specifically addressed to Abraham, Steven Holl reviews his recent work in terms of ambiguity of time, place, and scale, ambiguous systems, and programs, and the clarity of concepts.

Holl presents a mixed-use project Linked Hybrid, in Beijing; the Horizontal Skycraper–Vanke Center in Shenzhen; the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, Missouri; the Cité de l’Océan et du Surf museum in Biarritz; the Visigoth Museum competition entry; the World Design Park Complex; the Daeyang Gallery and Guest House; and the Queens West Library.
