Description

Louis I Kahn, published by Phaidon, provides a deep insight into the work of the Estonian-American architect Louis Isadore Kahn (1901–1974), one of the most influential 20th-century architects. The book delves into Kahn’s works ranging from New York’s Four Freedoms Park to the Yale University Art Gallery, and also presents lesser-known and unbuilt projects. This is a revised and expanded edition of the book, consisting of 528 pages and about 800 photographs. The book was written by Robert McCarter, a practicing architect Ruth and Norman Moore Professor of Architecture at Washington University in St. Louis.

The significance of the work of Louis I Kahn, one of the greatest influences on post-WWII world architecture, has skyrocketed in the twenty-first century. Robert McCarter’s bestselling and critically-acclaimed monograph explains how Kahn redefined Modern architecture and why his work remains a fundamental source for architects and designers today. Now thoughtfully updated, this comprehensive and extensively illustrated overview features both built and unbuilt projects, including Yale University Art Gallery, Kimbell Art Museum, and the Salk Institute, along with his work in India and Bangladesh, as well as a project realized forty years after Kahn’s death – New York City’s Four Freedoms Park.
