'Written in Water' is the first publication of Steven Holl’s legendary water-colours. The 365 water-colours in diary form represent this famous and influential American architect’s creative process. Holl is known for his sculptural architecture and his genuine use of light, qualities ideally suited to water-colour technique. Steven Holl was born in 1 947 in Bremerton, Washington, and studied architecture in Rome and London. In 1 976 he founded the Steven Holl Architects architectural practice in New York.
