Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Kahn may be remembered as the greatest American architect after Wright; although he was not particularly prolific, his highly individual buildings have won him a well-justified reputation both in the United States and abroad. This compilation of previously published writings, lectures, and interviews is the first of three volumes to be published by Rizzoli to coincide with a major traveling exhibition on Kahn (the other two will focus on his architecture and his paintings and drawings). Organized chronologically, the eloquent, often poetical pieces provide revealing insights into the way Kahn approached form and function; they remind us of the architect's great gifts as a teacher and communicator. Essential to any architectural library. See also David B. Brownlee and David G. DeLong's Louis I. Kahn: In The Realm of Architecture , reviewed in this issue, p.121.--Ed.
