New York, 2004

Book ID: 66328

A riveting tale of love, art, betrayal and forgiveness in which the illegitimate son of a legendary architect undertakes a worldwide exploration to discover and understand his father's work and the personal choices he made. Louis I. Kahn is considered by many historians to have been the most important architect of the second half of the twentieth century. While Kahn's artistic legacy was a search for truth and clarity, his personal life was secretive and chaotic. His mysterious death in a train station men's room left behind three families, one with his wife and two with women with whom he had long term affairs. The child of one of these extra marital relationships, Kahn's only son Nathaniel, sets out on a journey to reconcile the life and work of this mysterious man.
