On May 27, Steven Holl will deliver a lecture titled Questions of Perception at Villa Panza in Varese, Italy as part of the VISIONARE lecture series curated by Fulvio Irace.
The lecture borrows its title from the 1994 text Holl co-authored with Alberto Pérez-Gómez and Juhani Pallasmaa. It explores the phenomenology of architecture through eleven “phenomenal zones”: enmeshed experience; perspectival space; of color; of light and shadow; spatiality of night; time, duration, and perception; water: a phenomenal lens; of sound; detail: the haptic realm; proportion, scale, and perception; site, circumstance, and idea. Incorporating recent projects by Steven Holl Architects realized after the book’s publication, Holl recasts the “phenomenal zones” and connects new built works with these original concepts.
