Louis Kahn is an architect’s architect. At the time of his death in 1974, he was “America’s foremost living architect,” according to his New York Times obituary, a master builder whose relatively small body of work nonetheless proved influential to the work of architects like Renzo Piano and Frank Gehry.
A new exhibition at the Design Museum in London is designed to expose a broader audience to Kahn’s architectural genius. “We talk about Louis Kahn as someone who isn’t as heralded within the general public as he should be,” curator Alex Newson says in an interview.
