Abstract

La corrispondenza al luogo del progetto e l’adesione all’orografia dei declivi boscosi del paesaggio collinare intorno a Philadelphia costituiscono i presupposti ai temi che Louis Kahn introduce nella Shapiro House a Narberth e in alcuni progetti di Private Houses realizzati tra gli anni ’50 e ’70 nelle periferie della storica città della Pennsylvania.

The correspondence to the place of the project and the adherence to the orography of the wooded slopes of the hilly landscape around Philadelphia constitute the premises to the themes that Louis Kahn introduces in the Shapiro House in Narberth and in some Private House projects undertaken between the Fifties and Seventies in the suburbs of the historical city in Pennsylvania.
