One of the foremost architects of the late twentieth century, Louis Kahn (1901 – 1974) created modern buildings that are famously both monumental and sensitive to the human scale. Born in what is now part of Estonia, Kahn immigrated to the United States as a young child and studied architecture at the University of Pennsylvania. His most acclaimed projects include the National Assembly Building in Dhaka, Bangladesh; the Salk Institute in La Jolla, California; the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas; the Yale University Art Gallery in New Haven, Connecticut; and the Phillips Exeter Academy Library in Exeter, New Hampshire. Kahn received the AIA Gold Medal in 1971 and the RIBA Gold Medal in 1972. He was elected a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1971.
