Our Favourites: Three Steven Holl-Projects in white

The Performing Arts Centre The Reach in Washington D.C., the clinic building Maggie's Centre Barts in London and the Sifang Art Museum in Nanjing present themselves in a white shell.

Living memory: Performing Arts Centre The Reach

Steven Holl Architects bring the memory of J.F. Kennedy to life in the Performing Arts Centre The Reach. The following film vividly illustrates how the building and its surroundings combine to form a breathing organism.

A peaceful haven in the hospital world: Maggie’s Centre Barts

A light structure that glows from within now shines among the Victorian buildings of St. Bartholomew’s, London’s oldest hospital. The support centre for cancer patients is friendly and welcoming. Its open volume, which is bathed in soft light, offers a peaceful ambience sheltered from hospital routine.

Architecture: Steven Holl Architects; jmarchitects (associate architects)
Location: St Bartholomew's Hospital, West Smithfield, London EC1A 7BE (GB)

Opening Narrow Minds: Sifang Art Museum

In a forest on the outskirts of the former Chinese capital Najing grows a $164-million development with 11 buildings designed by leading international architects. Centerpiece of the development is the Sifang Art Museum, an exhibition that will feature works by Anselm Kiefer, Luc Tuymans and Chinese art collective Made In Company at its first exhibition. The complex also includes a hotel, conference center and 20 residential villas.
