Louis Kahn’s Esherick house
Wright Auction house will be auctioning Louis Kahn’s Esherick house located just outside of Philadelphia. The house stands as one of the most important houses realized by Kahn throughout his career, and is the first residence to illustrate his mature architectural ideals. The house will be offered in Wright’s Important Design sale with an estimate of $2-3 million.
Wright has commissioned artist Todd Eberle to create an original photographic essay that elaborately documents the Esherick house with Eberle’s exactness and astounding understanding of architectural spaces. From abstract details that show the perfection of the construction to sweeping shots of the stunning elevations, the images showcase Kahn and Eberle’s shared affinities for the subtleties of space and light.
