STEVEN HOLL / Making Architecture | OSTRAVA

22. 9. – 5. 12. 2021
The patrons of the exhibition are Tomáš Macura, Mayor of the City of Ostrava, Lubomír Zaorálek, Minister of Cultury, Ivo Vondrák, President of Moravian-Silesian Region, and the U.S. Embassy in Prague.
The patron of the Gallery of Fine Arts in Ostrava is Lukáš Curylo, First Deputy Governor of the Moravian-Silesian Region.
The project is financially supported by the City of Ostrava and Czech Ministry of Culture.

The travelling exhibition presents 11 completed projects by the world-famous American architect Steven Holl. It was prepared by the Steven Myron Hall Foundation and curated by Nina Stritzler-Levine. As part of the European tour, the exhibition also includes a twelfth project (now in the preparatory phase): a concert hall in Ostrava.
The exhibition reveals the intricate and distinctive process of creating these projects, which the exhibition presents from the first watercolour sketches through the building designs to their models. Through photographs, it also reveals the process of construction, including media responses and author's comments.
You will learn about the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the Jin-Pao-San Necropolis in Taiwan, a library in Malawi, and the Cancer Care Centre in London, among others.
The exhibition project is held in cooperation with the Statutory City of Ostrava, the Cabinet of Architecture, and Janáček Philharmonic Ostrava.
