Hungarian-American photographer Balthazar Korab spent much of his career photographing some of the most iconic buildings of the 20th century. This photograph is of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in San Diego by Louis Kahn, completed in 1965. Of the three proposed clusters in the original design, only the laboratory cluster seen here was built, framing a view of the Pacific Ocean. The pink tint of the concrete is a result of the presence of volcanic ash. The original photograph wasn't quite centred, so I actually spent a considerable amount of time digitally reconstructing the entire left edge of the image to give the entire composition more symmetry, whilst slightly emphasising the drama between the sky and the courtyard– Jordon J. Lloyd

A great building must begin with the unmeasurable, must go through measurable means when it is being designed and in the end must be unmeasurable– Louis Kahn
