Building: Louis I. Kahn at Roosevelt Island

Photographs by Barney Kulok

Text by Steven Holl. Afterword by Nathaniel Kahn.

In September 2011, Barney Kulok was granted permission to create photographs at the construction site of Louis I. Kahn’s Four Freedoms Park in New York City, commissioned in 1970 as a memorial to Franklin D. Roosevelt. The last design Kahn completed before his untimely death in 1974, Four Freedoms Park remained an unrealized work by one of the masters of twentieth-century architecture. Forty years after the original commission, it was finally completed in 2012. Unbuilt is at once a historical record and a multilayered visual investigation of form and the subtleties of texture--elements that were of fundamental importance to Kahn’s approach . As architect Steven Holl writes, “Kulok’s photographs free the subject matter from a literal interpretation of the site. They stand as ‘Equivalents’ to the words about material, light and shadow that Louis Kahn often spoke.”

A Poetic World in Luminous Silence: Barney Kulok to Sign 'Building: Louis I. Kahn at Roosevelt Island' at ICP, NY

A Poetic World in Luminous Silence: Barney Kulok to Sign 'Building: Louis I. Kahn at Roosevelt Island' at ICP, NY

In his essay for Barney Kulok's stunning new collection of construction photographs made at Louis Kahn’s Four Freedoms Park on Roosevelt Island, (commissioned in 1970 as a memorial to Franklin D. Roosevelt, but only completed in 2012), architect Steven Holl writes, "It is as if Kulok has composed a musical score equivalent to Kahn’s work under construction. Kulok’s compositions leave the literal world behind and present a more poetic world in luminous silence." Nothing could be more true. Please join Kulok for a book signing at the International Center of Photography Store in New York, this Friday, March 22 from 6–7:30pm. Featured image is reproduced from Building: Louis I. Kahn at Roosevelt Island, published by Aperture. continue to blog
