"The Library at Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter, NH, has won the Twenty-Five Year award from the American Institute of Architects. The award is bestowed annually on an American work of architecture that has proved its merit over a life of at least a quarter of a century. . The Exeter Library, which opened in 1971, was designed by Louis I. Kahn (1901-74). Kahn . accomplished something no one else had quite figured out how to do. He made modern buildings that achieved the timeless, monumental presence of the great works of the past. . Kahn respected books. 'Nobody ever paid the price of a book; they pay only for the printing,' he once said. Exeter is his attempt to embody, in brick and teak and marble and concrete, the essence of a particular kind of institution: the house of books, the library." --Robert Campbell, The Boston Globe, January 11, 1997 This groundbreaking CD-ROM will bring you as close to the Library at Philips Exeter Academy as you can get without actually visiting it. The disc includes:
* video clips of the library's exterior and interior
* animated plans and sections
* hundreds of exterior and interior color photographs
* audio explanations by the author
* archival audio recordings of Kahn's lectures
* illustrated descriptions of five other projects by Kahn
