Louis Kahn. Houses
Toto Publishing, Tokyo, 2009
Graceful detail, simple materials, abstract forms, monumentality; common elements to Kahn’s architecture known for his large scale buildings throughout North America, India and Bangladesh. But less known, are his house designs. In total 20 private house plans (not including renovations) were designed by Kahn. Nine of these were realized and are profiled here; interior and exterior serenely pictured in both full page spreads. Also includes 3 extra essays and a fold out with plans of Kahn’s buildings.
