Here, author Zhang Jing, using modern drawing software, has redrawn the plans, elevations, sections, and axonometric drawings from 138 architectural works by the renowned Louis I.

In so doing, the author arrives at a new and objective perspective to understanding Kahn and his work, and creating an invaluable resource for future study. By working through and observing the sketches in a chronological order, Kahn's spatial characteristics and variations can be seen in a holistic way.
