A+U 461: Houses by Louis I. Kahn


Over the course of a four week period in 2008, A+U had the opportunity to photograph 12 houses by the architect Louis I Kahn. This issue documents the current state of these historic houses – from his first house designed before World War II to the house completed as his last project before he passed away – with a new selection of images and many original drawings. In the course of research for this issue, a series of drawings documenting the design process of the Fisher house and a 40 minute taped conversation between Kahn and Mrs. Fisher were uncovered. Copies and transcripts are included in this issue and accompanied by a multitude of sympathetic photographs, technical drawings and explanatory texts.
