Product Details


“In this long overdue exploration of the ethical principles and philosophical themes grounding the work of Louis Kahn, Lobell lucidly presents the way Kahn’s buildings begin with essential insights into the nature of things, and then reveals how these are transformed into material experiences for the inhabitants. The book’s central theme is Kahn’s belief that because our lives quite literally take place in architecture, buildings must be made in such a way as to enrich, ennoble and give meaning to our experiences. Kahn believed that the most appropriate inspirations for design come from beginnings, and for those seeking a better understanding of Kahn’s thinking, this book is an inspiring place to start.”
—Robert McCarter, architect, author, and Ruth and Norman Moore Professor of Architecture, Washington University in St. Louis
