Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
Since it’s opening, Steven Holl Architects’ addition to The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, MO has been lauded by leading national press and prestigious architecture communities. Capping off an award-winning year, TIME magazine’s Richard Lacayo just voted the museum #1 in its Top 10 of Best Architectural Marvels of 2007 stating: “Adding a new wing to a neoclassical museum, Holl devised a spectacular update on classicism…The effect against the nighttime sky is nothing short of magical.”

Sustainable Residence Kansas City
Design for a single-family residence at 3716 Springfield in the Rosedale neighborhood of Kansas City, Kansas. Nestled on a secluded site near the University of Kansas Medical Center, the residence seeks those who desire to live “off-the-grid” while enjoying the revitalized amenities that comprise the metropolitan urban core. Studio 804, a not-for profit, design/build program at the University of Kansas, is a process that creates architecture while thoughtfully responding to global problems of density and sustainability using smaller scale, local solutions.
