The Charles Kahn Interviews

Charlie Kahn, an MIT graduate and Professor of Architecture at NCSU, became the first Dean of the new School of Architecture and Urban Design at the University of Kansas in 1968.  During Kahn’s tenure, the program's Bauhaus-based orientation expanded with additional emphasis on social concerns and international relations. Kahn brought to KU the rationalism and scientific attitudes of MIT coupled with the strong Bauhaus orientation of NCSU.  During the 1970's, Dean Kahn personally recorded audio interviews with and presentations from noted architects from around the world.  Listed by date recorded.
