LINKED HYBRID

LINKED HYBRID 7 YEARS LATER

STEVEN HOLL ARCHITECTS

Beijing, China  2015


Created for the polemic architecture and film series, 32BNY, this film follows architect Steven Holl as he revisits his “three-dimensional urban space,” Linked Hybrid, 7 years after its completion.

A building is always a response to a program.  But, when designing a “chunk of a city,” there is no way to know what all the programs can be.  By making sure key architectural principles are at the forefront of the design – space, light, form, and texture – anyone can use that energy and adapt to their own needs. Watch the raw and “live” observations as we follow Holl to see how the building has performed and how the design has both shaped, and been shaped, by its community.
