dc.descriptionView, on axis, of the central court, depicting water source in the foreground and looking west; Both the formal issues and the mechanical complexity encountered in the project were re-examined in Kahn's designs for the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, La Jolla, CA (1959-1965). A major part of its programme was the monumental representation of a new institution in a new location, and Kahn responded with a site plan that echoed his Beaux-Arts training: two study/laboratory wings flank a formal axial courtyard with a view to the sea; they were to have been connected by oblique linking paths to a village-like residential area and a meeting building. Mechanical services for the laboratories are accommodated in walk-through inter-floor spaces, a method that became standard practice in hospitals and laboratories.
