Steven Holl is revered among architects and students for his quiet and consistent modernist buildings. His reputation among generations of students was cemented during his early tenure at Columbia University and his founding of Storefront for Art and Architecture. His Pamphlet Architecture series furthered his standing as a leader of the avant-garde. With his embrace of computer technology, Holl smoothly transitioned from the 1980s into the digital design era of the 1990s. At the same time, his practice expanded globally and his housing projects in Japan opened to international acclaim. Recently, the ultramodern design of his Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art earned high praise for its revitalizing influence on Helsinki's city center. Remarkably, this monograph is the only book available that documents Holl's full career, covering his early houses of the 1970s to his latest designs for museums currently under construction.

The Stretto House, built near Dallas, Texas, in 1992, exemplifies the poetic nature of his architecture, as well as his method of following an initial concept to its fullest realization. The need for protection from the scorching Texas sun led the architect to explore the ideas of shadow and overlap; the bold overlapping stretto between heavy percussion and light strings in Bela Bartok's Music for Strings, Percussion, and Celeste proved fertile for the form and construction of the residence. Like Bartok's score, the house has four sections, each consisting of heavy concrete-block "spatial dams" with light metal-roofed "aqueous space" flowing between. Orthogonal floors pull one space through to the next, while curvilinear roofs stretch space over the walls. Essential to the sequential balance are rich details and carefully selected materials, including glass slumped or cast in fluid shapes and liquid terrazzo.
