Video: Knut Hamsun Center by Steven Holl Architects
Here is a short video of Steven Holl wandering his newly built Knut Hamsun Center in Hamarøy, Norway, waxing poetic on his design. It isn't the most polished video I've seen but its an interesting view of the interior and nice to hear Holl talking about the building. Still one of my favorite architects, his focus on phenomenology has inspired many of my own designs, particularly his use of light and material textures. I have yet to visit this building, or Norway, but it is high on my list of places to go while living in Europe.
