Salk Institute: Louis I.Kahn - Architecture in Detail (Paperback)

by James Steele

Format: Paperback 60 pages

Not available on Waterstones.com

The "Architecture in Detail" series comprises books that focus on individual buildings noted for their exceptional character, innovative design or technical virtuosity. Each volume contains a text by a respected author, a sequence of colour and black-and-white photographs and a set of technical drawings and working details. Louis Kahn's Salk Institute sits high above the Pacific at La Jolla, southern California. The project presented Kahn with the opportunity to design for a closed community, in this case research scientists. Incomplete at the time of Kahn's death, it survives as an enduring reminder of his genius.
