Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The first in-depth biographical study of the brilliant but elusivearchitect who fundamentally redefined twentieth-century architecture. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_new_0393731650
The first in-depth biographical study of the brilliant but elusive architect who fundamentally redefined twentieth-century architecture.Now ranked with Frank Lloyd Wright, Le Corbusier, and Mies van der Rohe, Louis I. Kahn brought a reverence for history back into modern architecture while translating it into a uniquely contemporary idiom.
Drawing on more than one hundred interviews with colleagues, coworkers, clients, and family members and illustrated with many previously unpublished photographs, this book documents the uniquely American rise of a poor immigrant to the pinnacle of the international architectural world.It illuminates the richly diverse personal relationships Kahn had with such clients as Jonas Salk and Paul Mellon, and the romantic entanglements that mystified even those closest to him. While celebrating the genius of Kahnís art, the book provides an invaluable portrait of the man who created it.
Über den Autor: Carter Wiseman teaches history and criticism at the Yale School of architecture. He lives in Weston, Connecticut. He is also the author of Twentieth-Century American Architecture.
