33 Projects from 2000-2011. Illustrated with over 300 drawings and watercolors reproduced to scale from Holl's sketchbooks. These drawings are accompanied by the occasional photograph of the realized building.

Cover has very minor wear to one corner and very minor sunning/fading. Spine is slightly slanted. Near fine condition.

From Steven Holl's preface :
A knowledge gained through intuitive action is central to the exploratory sketches and paintings collected here. The direct mind/hand/eye interaction is a crucial tool on the way to a concept which may drive a design. At the scale of the hand, the 5"× 7" watercolor notebook format has remained a constant over thirty years of my collaborations towards architecture. The initial analogue concept sketch is supercharged with digital drawings, models, and digital fabrications.

We continue to work on small projects, an interior or a house, while other projects might be over 1,000,000 square feet; an astonishing jump in scale considering a project's origins in a 5"×7" concept sketch.

From the publisher:
"This is the second publication of Steven Holl's legendary watercolors, following Written in Water, 2002. 400 watercolors represent the creative process of this famous and influential American architect. The watercolors 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 watercolor-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 watercolors are juxtaposed by photographs of the built architecture and emphasize the crucial aspect of scale."
