Synopsis:
Using computer imaging techniques to complete unfinished work, this collection of "unbuilt" masterworks by the great architect includes plans for a meeting house at the Salk Institute and a Holocaust memorial.

Review:
"Most moving of the eight schemes visually reconstituted here are for the Mikveh Israel Synagogue of 1961-72 in Philadelphia and three successive versions of the Hurvah Synagogue in Jerusalem, on which Kahn worked from 1967 until his death. Both the American and the Israeli shuls are unquestionably lost masterpieces, especially poignant in a period that has produced very little distinguished religious architecture. Perhaps Larson's lifelike depictions will inspire donors to resurrect these compelling schemes and to give Kahn's fellow believers houses of worship equal to the finest churches of Christendom."
