Louis Kahn designed two major scientific laboratory
buildings, both of which were completed in the 1960s: the Richards
Medical Research Laboratories (1957-1961) at the University of Pennsylvania
and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies (1959-1965) in La Jolla,
California. Each project represents a breakthrough in Kahn's career.
With the Richards Labs, he established himself as a world-class architect
worthy of prestigious and sophisticated commissions. And with the Salk
Institute, he collaborated with the founder of the Institute, Jonas Salk, to create an icon of American architecture. The visual tectonics of both buildings will be explored.
