This new exhibition of the work of Steven Holl Architects presents six urban projects in China, designed with particular focus
on shaping public space, natural green strategies, hybrid programs, structure and light. Included are three built works: Linked
Hybrid in Beijing, Vanke Center/Horizontal Skyscraper in Shenzhen, and Sliced Porosity Block in Chengdu, as well as three
yet to be built works: Porosity Plan in Dongguan, Eco-City in Tianjin, and the Qingdao Culture and Art Center. Concept watercolors
of each building will be on view along with project models and construction documents. Also featured are short videos of the
built works. The exhibition is arranged chronologically from 2002-2013 through the rooms of the Schindler House, making physical
Holl's journey through a decade of thinking.
