Louis I. Kahn: Das Gesamtwerk

by Klaus-Peter Gast

The Yale University Art Gallery (1951-53) and the Richards Medical Research Building of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia (1957-61) were amongst the first manifestations of Brutalism and seminal works in the history of modern architecture. Kahn's most important later works include the First Unitarian Church, Rochester, New York (1959-67), the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, La Jolla, California (1959-65) and designs for the new capital in Dhaka, Bangladesh (1962-74). These and other buildings are shown in all their expressive power in numerous illustrations. The book also includes a complete chronology of events in Kahn's life and work, a bibliography and a list of buildings. 207 pages. 10" by 11.25".
