You Say to Brick : The Life of Louis Kahn, Paperback Book

You Say to Brick : The Life of Louis Kahn Paperback


Born to a Jewish family in Estonia in 1901 and brought to America in 1906, the architect Louis Kahn grew up in poverty in Philadelphia by the time of his death in 1974, he was widely recognised as one of the greatest architects of his era.

Yet this enormous reputation was based on only a handful of masterpieces, all built during the last fifteen years of his life.

Perfectly complementing Nathaniel Kahns award-winning documentary, My Architect, Wendy Lessers You Say to Brick is a major exploration of the architects life and work.

Kahn, perhaps more than any other twentieth-century American architect, was a public architect.
