This remains one of the most important scholarly and illustrative examinations of Kahn's life work and his philosophy of architecture. Photographs and descriptive analysis are followed by a biographical chronology of the architect's life and a complete list of his buildings and projects from 1925 to 1974. The primary texts critically address different dimensions and periods of Kahn's production.
