Full Description
Designing houses was a constant in the career of Louis I. Kahn. Even now, his houses are still loved and lived in. We had the opportunity to photograph 12 residences by Kahn and this issue illustrates the current state of these homes. From his first house designed before World War II, to the house completed as the last work during his lifetime, these projects are presented through images published for the first time and original drawings. Also included are a series of drawings that were recently found in the basement of the Fisher House that document the design process over 5 different schemes to the final design. A transcription of a conversation with Mrs. Fisher describes his views on housing and architecture. This edition is notable for the number of rare interior views that show furnishings and inside of the homes. Text in English and Japanese.
