Reviews - What do customers think about Louis I. Kahn (Studio Paperback)?

Copiously illustrated review of 44 major works  May 19, 2006
This is a concise and copiously illustrated paperback survey on 192 pages of all major buildings and projects from 1935 to 1983 published under ISBN: 3764359641 by Birkhäuser (Basel...) and ISBN: 0817959641 by Birkhäuser (Boston) in English and German side by side. Following 8 page Introduction, each of the presented 44 works is headed by a description from as little as just a few lines to over a page long followed by illustrations from one to several depending on work's scope. All of several hundreds only B&W (many multi-picture) illustrations - many of them technical (plans, sections, sketches, elevations, etc.), but also B&W photos of a good quality - are well balanced, superbly crisp and perfectly legible. On several pages at the end, there are: a biography, selected bibliography, list of works, etc. on several pages. Like all from the Studio Paperback series, the book is solid among architectural monographs even of a bigger size. Similar to smaller books from the Works and Projects series published by Gustavo Gili (GG) in English and Spanish.
