Brian Holland is the 2009-2010 Howard E. LeFevre Fellow at Ohio State University’s Knowlton School of Architecture. He comes to Columbus following ten years of architectural practice with offices in Los Angeles, Denver and New York City-most recently as a senior designer in the office of Winka Dubbeldam. Brian has been a visiting assistant professor of architecture at the American University of Beirut, and in 2008 he was a nominee for the Chernikhov Prize. He holds a Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania and a Bachelor of Architecture from Cal Poly, Pomona. Brian’s research at the Knowlton School is centered on urban agriculture as a means of environmental entrepreneurialism and infrastructural transformation. His interest is in approaching architecture as action before object-as a sequence of strategic operations within a complex field of cultural, material, and economic systems. By the careful manipulation of existing forms, his work aims to give rise to unique spatial conditions and programmatic invention while simultaneously achieving an economy of action.
