Louis Kahn in San Diego and La Jolla
SAH National Study Day
Friday, November 04, 2016

Join William Whitaker, curator of the Architectural Archives of the University of the Pennsylvania School of Design, for this behind-the-scenes, in-depth SAH Study Day celebrating the architectural genius of AIA Gold Medalist Louis I. Kahn, FAIA.

Begin with a curator-led, private preview of the exhibition “Louis Kahn: The Power of Architecture” at The San Diego Museum of Art (William Templeton Johnson, 1926), the first retrospective of Kahn’s work in two decades. Enjoy a close viewing of the works and lively discussion with Whitaker and Jochen Eisenbrand, chief curator of the Vitra Design Museum, while the gallery is closed to the public.

Reconvene at Kahn’s pioneering Salk Institute for Biological Studies (1959) for a comprehensive tour, including spaces rarely open to the public, led by Senior Director of Facilities Tim Ball. Discuss the conservation of Kahn’s teak window walls with architectural conservators Sara Lardinois from the Getty Conservation Institute and Kyle Normandin and Ann Harrer of Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates. Take part in a special afternoon reception on the magnificent plaza overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Return to The San Diego Museum of Art for a talk with Kahn’s children, Sue Ann Kahn, Alexandra Tyng, and Nathaniel Kahn. Hear them regale the audience with colorful stories about their father and his work.

Experience the work of Louis Kahn firsthand in an intimate group setting alongside experts in the field. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity. The program is limited to 20 participants.
