Between Silence and Light

The architectural vision of Louis Kahn is presented in John Lobell's beautiful book, Between Silence and Light: Spirit in the Architecture of Louis I. Kahn. Kahn's vision is one of depth and breadth going to the fundamentals of his art and aethetic. Not only an architect, but a creative thinker, he designed many wonderful buildings including the Salk Institute and the Exeter Library. It is in his buildings that we see the depth of his feeling for humanity and the realization of his vision. Some of his work is highlighted at Kahn's buildings.
