Louis Kahn, one of the most admired second generation modernists, came to prominence later in life, producing a clutch of influential building before his sudden death in 1974.
This interview, one of a series conducted by architectural publisher John Peter, was recorded in 1961 at Kahn's architectural office. During the design of his Trent Bath House, Kahn had a realisation about the hierarchy of space that would become central to his work. Here he discusses the distinction between served and serving spaces both in architecture and urban design (in particular the architecture of the street which Kahn terms viaduct architecture), and the need for new rules for the making of cities.
