The Steven Myron Holl foundation is a nonprofit organization that supports several artistic projects, including the art gallery 'T' Space, the videopolemic series 32BNY and the archive material at Steven Holl Architects.

MISSION

  1. UNITE the architecture, art, poetry and music of our time. The cross-inspiration of the arts through history, a pursuit of fundamental importance, is a core purpose of the Steven Myron Holl Foundation.

  2. REFLECT at a time when art and architecture have become  increasingly financial instruments.  The Steven Myron Holl Foundation is dedicated to reflecting on the meanings of art and architecture, with the aim of educating the public by facilitating dialogue among living artists. 

  3. COMMISSION new works and experimental collaborations. By commissioning artists, we foster hybrid combinations of new thought. 

  4. EDUCATE through the arts, music and poetry, providing an enriched architectural education, including a summer architecture fellowship and academic tours. 

  5. RENEW the deep connection of the arts, humanity and the natural landscape.  The Steven Myron Holl Foundation is dedicated to the preservation of our forested natural habitat.
