Between silence and light : spirit in the architecture of Louis I. Kahn by John Lobell( Book )

13 editions published between 1979 and 2008 in English and held by 761 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Louis Kahn by Joseph Rykwert( Book )

5 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in English and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The publication of this book coincides with the centenary of the birth of American architect Louis Kahn (1901-1974), though its immediate occasion is the new collection of photographs that illustrate the text and provide an opportunity to reconsider Kahn's achievement and his way of working. Architectural historian Joseph Rykwert has written a sensitive appreciation of Kahn's career and oeuvre, and photographer Roberto Schezen traveled the world to photograph fifteen of Kahn's major projects especially for this volume. Supplementing the photographs are dozens of Kahn's sketches and plans for many of his built and unbuilt designs."--Jacket
Louis Kahn's situated modernism by Sarah Williams Goldhagen( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Goldhagen presents much new archival evidence about Kahn's buildings, his ideas, and his indebtedness to contemporary art and to the many socio-critical and architectural discourses of the postwar years. She offers fresh interpretations of many of his important buildings, including the Yale University Art Gallery and the National Assembly complex in Bangladesh, as well as of such previously understudied or misunderstood works as the Trenton Bathhouse and his AFL Medical Services building in Philadelphia. Goldhagen then theorizes Kahn's architectural principles to show that he struggled with modernism rather than against it, reconceptualizing it into a singular and powerful new vocabulary that retains architectural and social relevance today."--Jacket

8 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The paintings and sketches of Louis I. Kahn by Jan Hochstim( Book )

7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Paintings and Sketches of Louis I. Kahn is the first comprehensive presentation and analysis of this great twentieth-century master's art works - his main pursuit for the thirty years before he achieved preeminence in the field of architecture. The charcoal sketches, pastels, watercolors, and oils presented here were made largely on Kahn's travels and vacations in Europe, Canada, and the United States. They range from his experiements in moderne-style illustration, to realism, to the stark and metaphysical abstractions of his later years - including landscapes, building sketches, still lifes, portraits, and cityscapes. Organized chronologically, each work is accompanied by a brief description and analysis. This lavishly illustrated volume provides a catalogue raisonné of all 480 known paintings and sketches by Kahn, and also includes an in-depth critical analysis of the works and their relationship to his architecture, a biographical sketch, an extensive bibliography, and an introduction by leading Kahn authority Vincent Scully. -- from dust jacket
