I first began developing KAHNZUMTHORHOLL with a strong impulse to reconcile intersecting architectural vantages from three of my personal design heroes: Louis Kahn, Steven Holl, and Peter Zumthor. Beginning with projection and ending with reflection, this work is as much about self discovery and a kind of itching as it is about architectural space. Over a period of months, I recombined their attitudes about space with my own. Somewhere amidst that process, a more cerebral architecture of imagined space emerged, held in check by my intuitive appreciation for familiar forms. Layers of nuance began to appear and disappear with viewing distance, revealing new fabrics of interconnections while interrupting previous ones. At once personal and anonymous, the work churns slowly in a dense amalgam of frustration, exhilaration, and contagion.
