Steven Holl is one of the great contemporary architects. With a career spanning over 40 years, Holl has produced a body of work that has seen his consistent and considered approach to architecture develop into a unique signature style. Although this style is comprised of many different aspects, none is more synonymous than his unparalleled mastery over daylight.

In honor of Holl’s work, he was awarded The Daylight Award 2016 for Daylight in Architecture by the VELUX Foundation. The Daylight Award honors and supports daylight research and daylight in architecture, for the benefit of human health, well-being and the environment. The award puts specific emphasis on the interrelation between theory and practice and is awarded once every two years.

In anticipation of an upcoming lecture series Steven Holl will be holding in Copenhagen and Zurich, editor-in-chief, Robert Martin, spoke with Holl to find out more about his relationship with daylight.
