|Panel 11: Louis Kahn and the Main Campus - "The Plan Comes from my Feelings of Monastery"
The search for a world-class architect for IIMA which began in the middle of 1962 ended with the selection of Louis I. Kahn, who was introduced to Vikram Sarabhai and Kasturbhai Lalbhai by the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad and the Indian architect, Balkrishna V. Doshi. Kahn (1901-1974) was born in what is now Estonia in Europe and emigrated to the US at a very young age. He graduated with a degree in architecture from the University of Pennsylvania. He worked on several projects before joining Yale University in 1947 and the University of Pennsylvania in 1957 where he taught until his death.
