By Jean-Christophe Betrisey 

Stretched out on the psychoanalyst’s couch, the famous architect Louis Kahn tells us surprising stories of his life, his families, his women and his architectural vision. 

His complex personality influenced a large part of his work and culminated in his spiritual peak which is engraved in the concrete and brick of Dhaka in Bangladesh.
The reader will be carried away by an exchange akin to talking, thus experiencing live this unique session in the analyst’s room. The dialogues are profound, direct, and allow us a glimpse into the unconscious mind of Lou, one of the most influential architects of the XXth century, who was found dead in the toilets of the Pennsylvania Railway Station in New York in 1974.
The psychoanalyst Jean-Christophe Bétrisey offers us an historic, original and work of fiction in the new “Collection du Divan”.
