Salk Institute [1965]

Louis Kahn

Kahn’s Salk Institute for Biological Sciences has certainly made its mark on the architectural canon through a unique fusion of Brutalism and the International Style coupled with an undeniable sensitivity for the Californian landscape surround. Although somewhat monolithic, the façade treatment and careful orientation has cemented Kahn’s vision as both monumental and tranquil and has since become a premier destination for inspired film work, particularly following its declaration as a historical landmark in 1991.
