Louis Kahn: The Importance of a Drawing
AIA Gold Medal | Louis I. Kahn, 1971
“The importance of a drawing is immense, because it’s the architect’s language,” famed architect Louis Kahn, one of the most significant architects of the 20th century, told his masterclass in 1967. While much of his built work has been heavily studied, this publication chooses instead to focus on Kahn’s prolific arsenal of drawings and plans, some of which were never realized. The Importance of a Drawingprovides an in-depth look into the subtleties of Kahn’s designs, featuring incisive analysis from architectural experts and over 600 high-quality reproductions of work by Kahn and his associates.
A testament to the architect’s meticulous craft, this volume is an essential addition to the library of established designers as well as students of architecture.
