Wanna buy a Lou Kahn?

03/14/2008


The Esherick house. 1961. Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia. For Sale at Wright, May 18, 2008 in Chicago. Estimated at $2–3 million. That’s all? How much was that Jasper Johns you just bought?

By the way, the Esherick house is right across the street from Robert Venturi’s house for his mother, completed just three years later.
