Praise

“Ideas change society; architecture changes the visible, functioning environment. Occasionally, one man’s creativity spans both; and the way men build to express their emotional and physical needs is never quite the same again. Louis Kahn was such a man.”—The New York Times

“Like all good books on architecture, this one leaves you wanting to be there, to inhabit Kahn’s meaningful and moving spaces. With each passing year, Kahn’s importance to architecture and culture becomes evermore clear, his buildings’ eternal and circumstantial attributes become evermore evident, and their exceptional quality becomes evermore present in our experience. Kahn loved beginnings, and for those wishing to explore Kahn’s work and thought, this beautiful book is a very good place to start.”—Robert McCarter, Ruth and Norman Moore Professor of Architecture, Washington University in St. Louis, author of Louis I. Kahn

“Between Silence and Light beautifully captures the essence of my father’s spiritual ideas about architecture. It is a luminous book.”—Nathaniel Kahn, Academy Award–nominated filmmaker of My Architect 

Between Silence and Light is an accessible introduction to Kahn’s wisdom and oeuvre, and the 2008 edition benefits from a new preface from Lobell as well as a list of additional resources. In Kahn’s passing, this ‘dialogue’ between the modern master and his student Lobell remains a definitive work.”—docomomo International
