Abstract

The authors discuss the significance of L. Kahn for culture of the XX century. In the period of transition from modernism to postmodernism, Kahn remained a unique figure: he took upon himself all the problems of the destroyed and unfinished architecture. They point out his distinctiveness and relation to the transition from avant-garde to modernism. They discuss the phenomenon of subjectiveness of architectural criticism.
