From the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth to the National Parliament House in Bangladesh, the influential work of late Estonian-born American architect Louis Kahn can be found across the globe. Author Robert McCarter has updated and redesigned his 2005 monograph with an expanded collection of Kahn’s works alongside insights into his design process in Louis I. Kahn[1] (Phaidon).

Kahn’s final project, Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park in New York City, was posthumously constructed in 2012; this new edition features aerial and ground photography of the fully realized park.
