Louis Kahn, Salk Institute

If you are in La Jolla, the best place to visit is the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. My family lives in La Jolla part-time and this is one of my favorite places to visit and bring friends whenever I’m in town. La Jolla is a beach community located in San Diego about 2 hours or 180 km from Los Angeles. Architect Louis I. Kahn designed the facility that he envisioned in the 1960’s. The institute was developed for biologists to explore questions about the basic principles of life.
