Summary "Generally acknowledged as one of the most artistically-minded architects practicing today, Steven Holl has just completed a museum considered the apex of his 33-year career-- the Bloch Building for the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City. Here Holl designed a linear series of subterranean galleries from which luminous, sculptural shards of channel glass, which he calls 'lenses', emerge from the earth along the eastern edge of the original, 1933 Beaux-Arts museum. In this visit, Holl takes us through the galleries where contemporary art is displayed beneath curving vaults admitting daylight, a tour effectively demonstrating the convergence of space, time, and architecture"--Container.
