Morning Headlines: Louis Kahn’s Clever House Is Off the Market
A piece of architectural history is about to be sold for only the second time in its existence. Yeah, the Clever House needs a little TLC, but as we said back in January, it’s Louis freakin‘ Kahn, man!
Laura Mennen of Philly.com reports that over 100 people came through to see the funky home featuring 18-foot high wood pyramidal ceilings and four glass angular gables, including architecture students and architects. First listed in January for $289,900, the home sits on .69 acres of wooded land and features a deck off of the rear of the house. Here’s the gallery for your enjoyment.
