Summary
"A definitive biography of the iconic American architect, Louis Kahn"--provided by publisher
Summary
Drawing on interviews with architect Louis Kahn's children, colleagues and students, the author explores the life and work of Kahn, who, unlike many other 20th-century architects, eschewed corporate buildings in favor of research facilities, government centers, museums, libraries, parks, religious buildings and other structures that would serve the public good
