HOLLER architecture is a research and design practice investigating the relationships between architecture, urbanism, landscape, and technology with an emphasis on using environmental performance as a generator for architectural form.

HOLLER architecture is one of seven firms selected for AIA New Practices New York 2012, an award recognizing and promoting innovative and emerging architecture firms within New York City. HOLLER architecture's work has been published and exhibited widely, including in the New York Times, the AIA-NY Center for Architecture, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
