‘FROM THE GROUND’ – A CHAPTER BY STAN FIELD IN BOOK ABOUT LOU KAHN

“KAHN at Penn : Transformative Teacher of Architecture” by James Williamson released in April, 2015. The book is a critical, in-depth study of Kahn’s philosophy of education … the first extensive and comprehensive investigation of the Kahn Master’s Class as seen through the eyes of his graduate students at Penn.

“Inspired by [his] views of time and place, I would be drawn back to my native South Africa by my deep connection to nature.  I had begun to see Lou Kahn’s powerful philosophical constructs in a new light that embraced ecological dynamics as the shaper of form.” Stan Field from his essay, “From the Ground”
