內容簡介


Louis Kahn (1901-1974)是戰後最重要的建築師,他的作品如:美國德州沃斯堡(Fort Worth)的金寶美術館(Kimbell Art Museum)、加州的沙克研究所(Salk Institute)以及孟加拉的國民議會廳都十分受人推崇。然而,他所設計的住宅,卻沒有那麼受人矚目。

這本精美的書,首次介紹了Kahn的九個大住宅案,從他最早1920年代認識現代主義開始,一路往下追到1960、70年的經典之作,作者同時也不斷探索建築師的思想如何因為設計房屋及內部裝潢時,和客戶溝通並欣賞案子當地的建築傳統而發展成熟。

本書圖文並茂,有新拍攝的照片,也有當時的檔案照,還有原本的藍圖手稿,以及從未發表過的訪談、檔案資料,甚至還有Kahn個人的文字。

George H. Marcus是賓州大學的藝術史兼任助理教授,William Whitaker則是賓州大學建築檔案室的策展人,該檔案是收藏了Louis Kahn作品的相關資料。 
 

Louis Kahn (1901--1974), one of the most important architects of the postwar period, is widely admired for his great monumental works, including the Kimbell Art Museum, the Salk Institute, and the National Assembly Complex in Bangladesh. However, the importance of his houses has been largely overlooked. This beautiful book is the first to look at Kahn's nine major private houses. Beginning with his earliest encounters with Modernism in the late 1920s and continuing through his iconic work of the 1960s and 1970s, the authors trace the evolution of the architect's thinking, which began and matured through his design of houses and their interiors, a process inspired by his interactions with clients and his admiration for vernacular building traditions. Richly illustrated with new and period photographs and original drawings, as well as previously unpublished materials from personal interviews, archives, and Kahn's own writings, The Houses of Louis Kahn shows how his ideas about domestic spaces challenged conventions, much like his major public commissions, and were developed into one of the most remarkable expressions of the American house.
