(anew) Louis Kahn : Architecture as Philosophy

(anew) Louis Kahn : Architecture as Philosophy

 
There have now been several new books on Kahn. Like mapping from the air, they swirl and contour more and more of his work, focusing tighter on the nature of each project, intent to bring the clearest presentation. But John Lobell is on a trail to find an even more elusive detail, the very philosophy within the Kahn projects. Studying and diagramming, probing and collecting, he looks at five Kahn projects - Richards, Exeter, Yale British, Salk and Kimbell - from a relentless angle, Kahn's intent, Kahn's philosophy. First he sets the Kahn stage, presenting the multiple forces of entrance, construction, material, articulation, hierarchy, thick walls, light, served and servant spaces and further. Then he takes on each of the projects, from their statement to their plan, from their experience to their philosophy, from their intent to their consequent.  It is an intimate tour, careful and clear and remarkable.
