Louis Kahn: The Importance of a Drawing
Michael Merrill (ed.)
An intimate guided journey into Louis Kahn’s craft and imagination, this book weaves its texts around the drawings of Kahn and his associates to accompany this master architect on his creative search.
The result not only open news insights into the genesis of Kahn’s iconic works but is also a fascinating study of this seminal figure’s artistic growth.
Based on unprecedented archival research and featuring hundreds of previously unpublished drawings, this book is both a provocative and timely contribution to the discourse on representation and architecture as well as an invitation to reflect on Kahn’s continuing relevance.
