AIA150 Project

Library, Philip Exeter Academy,
New Hampshire
Louis Kahn, 1967–72

The American Institute of Architecture (AIA) offers the Shape of America as part of its AIA150 series. This series features familiar, as well as little known structures in America, structures that form the fabric of our communities and our sense of place.

We think this video of Louis Kahn's Phillip Exeter Library is a a terrific architectural inspiration. Also, this video of Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin, winter home and school in the Sonora Desert is a treat, too.

The structures that Shape of America features are chosen through a "conversation" with the web community. Join the conversation.
