Three iconic examples of modern architecture-Walter Gropius's Bauhaus school in Dessau, Le Coubusier's Unite d'Habitation in Marseilles, and Louis I. Kahn's Salk Institute in La Jolla, California-are considered here in terms of social vision and humanism, comparing the approaches of three different architects to building for specific communities. This book, like others in the Architecture 3s series, presents three structures that exemplify a particular type or philosophy of building and then examines them in detail. Color and black and white photographs, sketches, architectural drawings, and even engineering details are present on nearly every page, along with a text that considers the building itself, its context, and its inspirations.
