Louis Kahn: The Power of Architecture
2012

Price: $100 * ISBN: 9783931936921 Hardcover, 354 pages, approx. 250 color and 250 black-and-white illustrations

The American architect Louis Kahn (1901–1974) is regarded as one of the great master builders of the twentieth century. With complex spatial compositions, an elemental formal vocabulary and a choreographic mastery of light, Kahn created buildings of archaic beauty. As the first comprehensive publication on this architect in twenty years, the book Louis Kahn: The Power of Architecture presents all of his important projects. It includes essays by prominent Kahn experts and an expansive illustrated biography with many new facts and insights about Kahn’s life and work. In a number of interviews, leading architects such as Frank Gehry, Renzo Piano, Peter Zumthor, and Sou Fujimoto underline Kahn’s significance in today’s architectural discourse. An extensive catalogue of works features original drawings and architectural models from the Kahn archive. The compendium is further augmented by a portfolio of Kahn’s travel drawings as well as photographs by Thomas Florschuetz, which offer completely new views of the Salk Institute and the Indian Institute of Management.
