Considered one of the foremost architects of the late twentieth century, Louis Kahn (1902-1974) is most notable for simple, platonic forms and compositions in his architectural works. Through the use of brick and poured-in place concrete masonry, he developed a contemporary and monumental architecture that maintained a sympathy for the site. While rooted in the International Style, Kahn’s architecture was an amalgam of his Beaux Arts education and a personal aesthetic impulse to develop his own architectural forms. He received the AIA Gold Medal in 1971 and the RIBA Gold Medal in 1972.
