This video highlights the design of Steven Holl's design of the Hangzhou Normal University Cangqian Performing Arts Center, Art Museum and Arts Quadrangle. Beautifully presented, with camera work moving through the models, and an elegant description of the design process by Steven Holl himself, this video makes the project seem like an exciting addition to the Hangzhou university as well as becomes a powerful piece of architecture. The juxtaposition of the additive form and subtractive design are excellent and lead to some stunning interior and exterior spaces. This is one of the few projects that I feel has successfully navigated the concept of blobitecture, considering that the form is directly derived from the functions within.
