This condensed edition of" Louis I. Kahn: In the Realm of Architecture is a definitive and richly illustrated volume that presents the oeuvre of one of this century's most influential practitioners, teachers, and thinkers in architecture. Here is the detailed account of the architecture and philosophy of Louis Kahn, whose buildings have become the very signature of the modernist aesthetic and whose vision permanently changed the direction of American architecture. Kahn's career is documented here with meticulous attention to all aspects of his work-- from his own fascinating biography to the unique philosophy that underlies his buildings to the structures themselves. The stunning range of Kahn's architectural vision becomes fully apparent: his structures are at once solemn and resonant, elemental and musical. Extraordinary, exclusively commissioned color photographs of his masterworks-- the Yale Center for British Art, the National Assembly complex at Dhaka, Bangladesh, the Kimbell Art Museum, the Indian Institute of Management, the Salk Institute-- exquisitely demonstrate how Kahn's architecture wholly reinvents space and light. In all, more than two hundred illustrations, including numerous drawings and floor plans, accompany the painstakingly researched text. This volume-- published in association with the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles and with the exclusive participation of the Louis I. Kahn Collection-- contains six principal essays that critically address different dimensions and periods of Kahn's architecture. The essays and photography are accompanied by succinct notes and captions, as well as a complete list of buildings and projects and an index, makingthis book the preeminent scholarly and illustrative source for Kahn's architecture.… (mehr)

In undergraduate architecture school my first exposure of Louis I. Kahn's work was not a good one: in one class we watched a critical documentary on the Richards Medical Research Building, which argued that the separation of served and servant spaces that Kahn became known for was not an appropriate response for the building users. Since then I have come to love the work of Kahn – so far visiting only the Kimbell Art Museum, something I need to remedy – but in my mind the Richards building is always a blemish of his oeuvre. One book that certainly helped in my growing appreciation of Kahn's building is this MOCA catalog to the traveling exhibition of the same name. This excellent book benefits from some deep scholarship by the authors, which covers Kahn's background and career in roughly chronological order, and beautiful illustrations. For those not familiar with Kahn, this is a great place to start, following behind only "Between Silence and Light." ( )
