''Even A Brick Wants To Be Something'' - Louis Kahn

Library, Phillips Exeter Academy, Exeter, New Hampshire, Louis Kahn, 1965–72. © Iwan Baan.


Louis Kahn (from "Licht und Raum- light and space", Urs Büttiker) The chronological listing of projects traces Kahn's development process in light control and modulation. Projects beginning with student work from 1924 and ending with the Berkeley library from 1971-1974 reveal an extraordinary broad spectrum of solutions for the design of light and space. Kahn's struggle to find the coherent answer for each architectural challenge remains the basic principle characterizing his complete work.
