New Haven, CT 2001 Hard Cover First Edition New in New jacket Quarto. 277 pp; 24 color plates & numerous b/w photographs, plans, elevations, drawings; index. Cloth with
dustjacket. A crisp, clean unused copy. Louis Kahn is perhaps the most important architect to emerge in the decades following World War II. In this book Goldhagen dismantles the myths that have cast Kahn variously as a mystical neo-Platonist, a structural rationalist, a visionary champion of Beaux-Arts principles, and a rebel against modernism. She demonstrates instead that the essence of Kahn's architecture lies in his deeply held modernist political, social and artistic ideals. Goldhagen shows that Kahn, throughout his life, sought to reconceptualize modernism to make a socially transformative architecture for the postwar world.
