Louis Kahn (from "Licht und Raum- light and space", Urs Büttiker) The chronological listing of projects traces Kahn's development process in light control and modulation. Projects beginning with student work from 1924 and ending with the Berkeley library from 1971-1974 reveal an extraordinary broad spectrum of solutions for the design of light and space. Kahn's struggle to find the coherent answer for each architectural challenge remains the basic principle characterizing his complete work.

Controlling heat gain from the sun: horizontal overhangs are more efficient on the south side of a building, whereas vertical fins are more efficient on the east or west elevations. Egg-crates, a combination of vertical and horizontal elements, are particularly efficient in hot climates because they screen out most, if not all, of the sun's rays.
