Book by Marcus George H Whitaker William


"A spellbinding account of the artistic and intellectual maturation of one of the most important and influential architects of the last century. It is quite simply the most important book on Kahn to be published in over two decades."-Michael J. Lewis, Williams College, author of American Art and Architecture -- Michael J. Lewis "Reveals an architect of mythic stature working on an intimate scale"-Elle Decor Elle Decor "If you thought you knew all there was to know about Kahn, read this splendid book-there is still more to learn about the greatest American architect of the second half of the 20th century." -Witold Rybczynski, Designers & Books -- Witold Rybczynski Designers & Books "The Houses of Louis Kahn... provides an architectural bridge between the personal and the professional stories, focusing on the nine houses Kahn completed, and designs for two dozen more. The story told by the authors, George H. Marcus and William Whitaker, is one of warm client relations, attention to the smallest domestic detail and a philosophical search for the best arrangement of rooms to call home."-New York Times New York Times "An important addition to the scholarship about Louis Kahn by addressing a portion of his oeuvre lesser known but certainly not less significant."-Docomomo Docomomo Winner of the 2014 Athenaeum Literary Award for Art and Architecture given by the Athenaeum of Philadelphia. -- Literary Award for Art and Architecture Athenaeum of Philadelphia "Marcus and Whitaker have not only directed superb scholarship to the study of Kahn's houses-both built and unbuilt-but have shown that the houses can be a lens on a broader understanding of Kahn's philosophy, his interpretation of Modernism, and his appreciation of the vernacular. They show how Kahn evaluated clients and how he designed spaces that would allow each house to become a personalized ideal-a home."-Susan G. Soloman, Architectural Record -- Susan G. Soloman Architectural Record
