Feeling light in a Lou Kahn stairwell in Richards Medical Research Laboratories at the University of Pennsylvania



    In a stairwell at Richards Medical Research Laboratories by Lou Kahn
    at the University of Pennsylvania.

    A mysterious place,
    with light from the corners. 
    A place to be alone. 
    A place to rise.  

    I step and realize again, 
    Kahn does more with a stairwell, 
    than most do with a cathedral.

President Barack Obama: What architecture is all about


    President Barack Obama at tonight's Pritzker Architecture Prize ceremony in Washington D.C. at the Mellon Auditorium. 
    He started by saying, "My interest in architecture goes way back. 
    There was a time when I thought I could be an architect." 

    Before the award was presented to the 2011 laureate, 
    the Portuguese architect Eduardo Souto de Moura, 
    Mr. Obama said a few words about architecture 
    and in particular about Chicago architecture.
