Wendy Lesser, founder and editor of The Threepenny Review, discusses her landmark biography, You Say to Brick: The Life of Louis Kahn

Born to a Jewish family in Estonia in 1901 and brought to America in 1906, the architect Louis Kahn grew up in poverty in Philadelphia; by the time of his death in 1974, he was widely recognized as one of the greatest architects of his era. Yet this enormous reputation was based on only a handful of masterpieces, all built during the last fifteen years of his life.
