Louis I. Kahn: The Last Notebook

Edited by Sue Ann Kahn. Text by Michael J. Lewis.

Louis I. Kahn: The Last Notebook

An intimate record of Kahn’s musings on design, coupled with preparatory drawings of his monumental last project

Published in honor of the 50th anniversary of his death in March 1974, this volume is a facsimile of the notebook in which Louis Kahn drew and wrote during his last year of life. Anchored by a magnificent set of preparatory drawings for his monument of Franklin Roosevelt in New York City, the notebook provides an intimate glimpse into private sketches of Kahn’s final projects and his poetic reflections on thematic preoccupations, such as “Silence to Light,” “Form and Design,” “Society of Rooms” and “Desire to Express.” Scholarly commentary and transliterations accompany all of his musings.
Born in Estonia, Louis Kahn (1901–74) immigrated with his family to Philadelphia when he was four years old. Kahn received Beaux-Arts training at the University of Pennsylvania, under the French-educated Paul Philippe Cret, and then adopted his own idiosyncratic modernism, which would engender the heterogeneous “Philadelphia school.” His architectural career did not take off until later in life; he attained his first major commission to design Yale University’s Art Gallery in 1951. Upon its completion, Kahn received many international commissions, and he developed a signature style that was monumental, monolithic and transparent in its functionality. He was awarded the AIA Gold Medal and the RIBA Gold Medal.
