The profound essence of this architecture can be appreciated only if its forms are interpreted as a dynamic element of the construction capable of setting up a relationship with the light effects and conveying a sense of the light weight of the entire structure.
Steven Holl's architectural vocabulary has always been based on the project's adherence to a preliminary concept. This method, found in all his works, has helped him conceive of buildings in unitary terms, avoiding the danger of fragmentation. It has also allowed him to investigate the quality of light and the fluidity of form, permitting him to build the work as a "unicum" in a unique relationship with its location.
