a momentary vignette | a brief, beautiful glimpse of architecture, design, and art!


Louis I. Kahn
February 20

A master of architecture who expressed a sense of monumentality through the composition of form and material, architect Louis I. Kahn was born on this day in 1901. A modernist, Kahn is perhaps best known for his architectural expression of 'served areas' and 'areas which serve'. This functional relationship is a trademark of Kahn's work which includes the Yale University Art Gallery, the Kimball Art Museum, and the Salk Institute Laboratories.
