Kahn's first residential commission. More pictures here.

Movie Recommendation

To learn more about Louis Kahn watch the movie My Architect: A Son's Journey. This is a moving and utterly fascinating film about Louis Kahn and his life and career.

Until now, I have not been familiar with the work of Louis Kahn. It's hard to believe this photo was taken in 1944 and not 1964.
