Wendy Lesser does a fine job describing Louis Khan's personal life, and she does a great job describing his interactions with staff and other architects. She struggles, though, explaining the breakthroughs in structure and form-making that Kahn achieved.
A recorded book is not the best medium for a story that is about creating buildings. I wanted to see pictures of Kahn’s creations. However his personal story was very interesting about the three families he had and how he was a father to all his children. While all aspects of Louis Kahn’s biography were engaging, this story roamed all over his life and was a very disorganized narrative. Nonetheless I recommend the book. No matter how it’s told, his was a remarkable life and talent.
