About this title

Synopsis:

Published on the centenary of his birth, Louis Kahn lauds the lifework of this master American architect, a figure whose importance has only increased since his death in 1974. Acclaimed as one of the most innovative minds of 20th-century architecture, Kahn's impact is evident in such landmark buildings as the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, the Salk Institute in La Jolla, California, and the Exeter Academy library in Exeter, New Hampshire.In his text, eminent architectural historian Joseph Rykwert presents a fresh assessment of Kahn's achievement. Roberto Schezen's photographs -- taken specially for this definitive volume -- examine 15 major projects. Sketches and plans from the Kahn archive at the University of Pennsylvania supplement the stunning illustrations and thoughtful text.
