Between Silence and the Light: Spirit in the Architecture of Louis I. Kahn

Be the first to review this product

Louis I. Kahn's influence on American architecture during his life was great, and his influence has only increased in the 33 years since his death - with interest in his work lately moving into the realm of popular culture through the successful film about him, "My Architect" (New Yorker Films, 2004). John Lobell's classic work presents stunning black-and white photos of some of Kahn's greatest buildings, including the Salk Institute, the Yale Study Center and the Exeter Library, combining them with excerpts from his writings that reveal him as a remarkable creative thinker. Kahn searched for beginnings: the origin of joy and wonder, of intelligence and intuition. He sought the basic principles of being, which he called Silence and Light. He spoke of these things with a tremendous yet gentle power. Reading his words and looking at his buildings, we experience him as architect, visionary, and poet.
