Provides the first thorough review of the achievements and philosophy of renowned American architect Kahn (1901-1974), closely examining all phases of his development through a presentation of drawings, sketches, models and numerous specially commissioned photographs of projects that range from the Yale University Art Gallery (1951-53) and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla (1959-65) to his most ambitious work, the complete complex of government buildings for the capital of Bangladesh (1962-83). Supplemented by individual discussions of 19 selected projects, the six-part text offers a detailed reappraisal of the architect's career and oeuvre, emphasizing the spiritual and theoretical concerns underlying his use of massive elemental forms and his treatment of space and light. ** CONDENSED EDITION PUBLISHED 1997; SEE WORLDWIDE 98264 -- Paperbound edition of ORIGINAL book is still available **
