Yes We Kahn

The Clever House, one of only 9 private residences designed by starchitect Louis Kahn, is currently on the market for $289,900. The ideal buyer, according to Aubin Clever, 39, the grandson of Fred and Elaine Clever, who commissioned the home in 1957, is "someone who is interested in owning a Louis Kahn house, and who is looking to preserve it as such. The house, quite frankly, does need work...though certainly not a teardown. Structurally, it is sound but does need TLC to get back to its former glory." [Philly.com]
