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. 

An indispensable reference work on one of the most important figures in 20th-century architecture. McCarter analyzes each of Kahn’s major buildings from the design process, methods and materials of construction to ‘walk-throughs’ of the spaces themselves and the book includes selected writings by Kahn as well as the complete chronology of Kahn’s projects, compiled by William Whitaker, Curator and Collections Manager of the Louis I Kahn Archives. Each project is illustrated with photographs and drawings that convey the spirit of Kahn’s work, as well as the inspirations that led to the design and buildings featured include such architectural icons as Yale Art Gallery, Kimbell Art Museum, and the Salk Institute, along with Kahn’s work in India and Bangladesh. This is an indispensable reference work on one of the most important figures in 20th-century architecture.
