Event Details

Iconic Buildings of the 20th Century - 'Salk Institute' by Louis Kahn

Tone Wheeler, architect and President of the Australian Architecture Association will give his second talk on Salk Institute by architect Louis Kahn.

Louis Khan’s mid century buildings are enigmas. Architecture students wonder what the fuss is about: the austere highly geometric forms, the starkness, the unyielding formality. The rigorous texts that accompany the works and Khan’s reputation as a great teacher don’t seem reflected in the buildings. And then on a visit their ‘first Kahn' their attitude reverses: these are the greatest works of architecture of the 20th C.

Tone has visited the building several times (and many other Kahn buildings) and believes that an enthusiastic study of the building can convey the power of the architecture without the costs of a visit.

Instructions

Drinks and Canapes will be served at 6pm and Presentation to commece at 6.40pm.
