Interview with author (Common Edge, 31.01.2022)
Michael Merrill, an award-winning architect and educator, has published his third book on Louis Kahn. As in his previous books he focuses on the importance of Kahns creative intelligence and design process. The book edited by Merrill combines a meticulous research and a highly suggestive exposition of drawings partly never piblished before on Kahn.
„By offering a spectrum of close readings of drawings by Kahn and his associates in a series of incisive and richly illustrated essays, this book is at once an intimate artistic portrait of this important architect and a provocative and timely contribution to the current discourse on representation in architecture.“ (quoted from the blurb)
„Based on unprecedented archival research, engagingly presented by a group of eminent scholars and architects, and illustrated with over 900 highest quality reproductions, The Importance of a Drawing is destined to become a standard work in the literature on Louis Kahn.“ (quoted from the blurb)
