Louis Kahn by Joseph Rykwert( Book )

5 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in English and held by 540 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 492 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

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

7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 415 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
Louis Kahn : essential texts by Louis I Kahn( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Louis I. Kahn : building art, building science by Thomas Leslie( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Louis I. Kahn : unbuilt masterworks by Kent Larson( Book )

6 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Author Kent Larson has delved into Kahn's extensive archives to construct faithful computer models of a series of proposals the architect was not able to build: the U.S. Consulate in Luanda, Angola; the Meeting House of the Salk Institute in La Jolla; the Mikveh Israel Synagogue in Philadelphia; the Memorial to Six Million Jewish Martyrs in New York City; three proposals for the Hurva Synagogue in Jerusalem; and the Palazzo dei Congressi in Venice. The resulting computer-generated images present striking views of "real" buildings in "real" sites." "Complementing the new computer images is extensive archival material - rough preliminary drawings, finely delineated plans, and beautiful travel sketches. Larson also presents documentation of each project, often including correspondence with the clients that shows not only the deep respect accorded the architect but the complicated circumstances that sometimes made it impossible to bring a design to fruition. Not only a historical study of Kahn's unbuilt works, this volume is in itself an intriguing alternative history of architecture."--BOOK JACKET

"The standing of the Yale Center for British Art as one of the world's great museums and study centers finds expression in its remarkable building, designed by Louis I. Kahn (1901–1974). In this important and innovative volume, two architects offer a plan to ensure the proper stewardship of the building in order to preserve its essence as a great architectural structure. Peter Inskip and Stephen Gee describe the design, construction, and subsequent renovation of the building; assess its cultural significance; analyze the materials that comprise it (steel, concrete, glass, white oak, and travertine); and shed light on its evolution over the four decades since it was built. Drawing on their extensive experience developing conservation plans for both historic sites and modern buildings, they propse a series of policies for the Center's conservation into the future."--Publisher's Description
