Property of the Week - Louis Kahn's home at 921 Clinton St, Philadelphia PA 19107
Although he had been away for a whole week, he was traveling with just one suitcase, the somewhat battered old leather case, barely larger than a briefcase, that he like to take on all his trips. Attached to its worn handle was a permanent luggage tag on which were typed the words "Prof. Louis I. Kahn, 921 Clinton Street, Philadelphia, PA, USA." -You Say to Brick: The Life of Louis Kahn by Wendy Lesser
