"Every building is a house, regardless of whether it is a Senate, or whether it is just a house." This beautifully illustrated book looks at the legendary architect Louis Kahn's designs for houses throughout his career. It examines twenty houses in detail, pointing out the elements that remain unchanged throughout, such as the use of wood and stone and the importance of the intermediate area linking the inside and outside of the building. In addition to photos, plans, details, and elevations, there are essays, including one by the Fishers on the design and construction of their home.
