LOUIS KAHN RESEARCH TEAM

LABOR is a proud member of architect LOUIS KAHN RESEARCH TEAM in Estonia. The research is based on the hypothesis that Kahn was born on Estonian island Saaremaa and visited Estonia in the late 1920s’ as a young architect on his European tour. The visual study shows that Kahns’ fundmental architecture has its roots in medieval Kuressaare. After a study of several years, LABOR produced a prototype for a typeface dedicated to Louis I. Kahn in 2018.
