Abstract:

"The publication of this book coincides with the centenary of the birth of American architect Louis Kahn (1901-1974), though its immediate occasion is the new collection of photographs that illustrate the text and provide an opportunity to reconsider Kahn's achievement and his way of working. Architectural historian Joseph Rykwert has written a sensitive appreciation of Kahn's career and oeuvre, and photographer Roberto Schezen traveled the world to photograph fifteen of Kahn's major projects especially for this volume. Supplementing the photographs are dozens of Kahn's sketches and plans for many of his built and unbuilt designs."--Jacket.
