Resumen del libro

libro Kahn

Kahn was born in Kuressaare on the Estonian island of Saaremaa. In 1905 his Jewish family immigrated to the United States, fearing that his father would be recalled into the military during the Russo-Japanese War. He was raised in Philadelphia and became a naturalized citizen on May 15, 1914. He trained in a rigorous Beaux-Arts tradition, with its emphasis on drawing, at the University of Pennsylvania ( Penn ). After completing his Masters degree in 1924, Kahn made a European tour and settled in the medieval walled city of Carcassonne. In 1925–1926 he served as Chief Designer for the Sesquicentennial Exposition. From 1947 he spent a decade teaching at Yale, where his influence was paramount, then moved to Penn. His prominent apprentices include Moshe Safdie and Robert Venturi. He died of a heart attack in a bathroom in Pennsylvania Station in New York City. He was not identified for three days, as he had crossed out the home address on his passport. He had just returned from a work trip to India. (from the Wikpedia web site)
