Class Details

Louis Kahn (1905-74) was one of the most influential architects of the twentieth century. For some, his work has reached cult status. We will investigate critical writings about him, beginning with Vincent Scully’s brief book of 1962 and ending with the most recent, a catalogue of the exhibition in 2012 of his work held at the Vitra Design Museum in Switzerland. We will study his own writings, some of his buildings (including a field trip to his two museums at Yale), and the film, My Architect, made by his son Nathaniel.
