Video: Steven Holl and the Architectural Experience

In this installment of the Louisiana Channel, world-renowned architect Steven Holl discusses his philosophy on organic architecture and its ability to generate a specific experience. "I believe architecture is an art, that it changes peoples' lives, and I think that's what architecture has the potential to do," Holl remarks.

Contemplating the relationship of people and place, Holl likens architecture's capacity to inspire an experience to that of music, claiming the phenomenon evoked by a space needs no conceptual explanation, just as music inspires the listener without any back-story. His work, which is carefully crafted from the inside out and is unique to each site, reflects his attitude that "the soul has more need for the ideal than the real."
