Crinkle Concrete was recently featured in @archpaper . Crinkle Concrete was developed by SHA as an acoustic solution for performance spaces in our Kennedy Center Expansion, but has wide potential for future applications. The article provides an in-depth look at our in-house prototyping and design process through fabrication and application. |Photos: Jonathan Morefield|
We were thrilled to see our Centre for Creative Design and Entrance Precinct Masterplan for University College Dublin featured in @irishtimesnews this weekend. Steven Holl presented the vision for the project at a public event at UCD’s O’Reilly Hall on Saturday.
An exhibition of rugs designed by Steven Holl for @cc_tapis will be on display at @informinteriorsseattle in Seattle, Washington. The exhibition explores the design process behind the rugs and the buildings that inspired them. Alongside full scale rugs, the show displays process watercolors from a variety of projects. The “Morton Feldman Carpet” above was inspired by American composer Morton Feldman’s musical score. It was originally developed as one of nine custom carpets for Steven Holl Architects’ Lewis Arts Complex at Princeton University. Inform Interiors and Steven Holl will be hosting an opening talk on June 26 at 5:30 PM. To RSVP, please go to the link in our bio, or
Steven Holl with Brice Marden at ‘T’ Space’s opening of Marden’s Cold Mountain Studies, last Sunday. The show was featured in the latest edition of @newyorkermag by Peter Schjedahl, who wrote “The pictures never suggest design. They are phenomena. Nor are they quite expressive. Rather, they are like transits of impulse from somewhere beyond the artist to somewhere beyond the viewer.” The show will be open at ‘T’ Space from June 9-August 11. This exhibition is sponsored by @gagosian , with major support by @carolynmarksblackwood and additional support by @stairgalleries , The Charles and Barbara Wright Foundation, @artsmidhudson , Poets and Writers, and special thanks to @copper_canyon_press |1st Photo Credit: Susan Wides| |2nd Photo Credit: David Ebony|
On May 29, the 102nd birthday of John F. Kennedy, Steven Holl and José Oubrerie visited the Kennedy Center REACH Expansion. The Expansion is set to open September 7 during an opening festival of performances and activities to celebrate the REACH.
We are glad to see Rubenstein Commons at the Institute for Advanced Study taking shape as the steel goes in! The geometry of the spaces is formed by Einstein’s “space curves” where two non-planar curves intersect. The director of the IAS remarked that the curved ceilings give space for “thought bubbles” of the scholars.
We are delighted to announce that the Glassell School of Art has won a Texas Society of Architects TxA 2019 Design Award @txarchitects ! The school is a part of the new Museum of Fine Arts Houston redevelopment, which includes the upcoming Kinder Building, also designed by SHA. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston redevelopment has the unique chance to expand the museum’s campus as an integral experience open to the community. Horizontal activity, transparency and porosity will unify the new MFAH, and provide inspiring and inviting public spaces. The lush Houston vegetation, refreshing sound, and reflections in water are all part of a new campus experience elevating the poetry of art. |Photos by Gary Paige|
The bamboo bowl sconces at Maggie’s Barts were designed and fabricated at our in-house shop. Layers of bamboo were laminated and CNC milled, then installed on site in London. Swipe to see the manufacturing process behind the end result!
We are thrilled to see the bridge being installed at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Expansion in Washington, D.C. The Kennedy Center’s connection to the Potomac River is finally being realized, more than 50 years after it was lost in Edward Durell Stone’s initial unrealized design. The new expansion integrates the landscape and river into the center’s existing program. The bridge is an integral element, providing direct pedestrian access to the Center from the waterfront. The Expansion will open to the public in September 2019.
We are excited to announce that the Winter Visual Arts Center at Franklin & Marshall College is topping out! The old growth trees, the oldest elements of the Franklin & Marshall campus, were the conceptual generator of the building’s geometry. The raised pavilion takes its shape from the concave inflection of the existing campus trees (all of which are preserved on the site). As a lightweight building, its main floor is lifted into the trees with the ground level open to Buchanan Park and the Arts Quad. The Winter Visual Arts Center will be completed this Fall 2019.
The Kinder Building at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston is nearing topping out! We are excited to see the building and the top floor galleries begin to take shape.
Construction is coming along for Rubenstein Commons at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey. Most of the pre-cast concrete panels are in, and we are thrilled to see our vision taking shape. The geometry of the spaces is formed by “space curves” where two non-planar curves intersect. The “space curves” were designed in honor of Einstein, who spent his last thinking years at the IAS. The director of the IAS remarked that the curved ceilings give space for the “thought bubbles” .
