Leading-edge biological research institute is also an architectural modernist masterpiece. Architect Louis I. Kahn's design employs a minimalist approach with two, mirror-image structures overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Completed in 1965, the institute offers free architectural tours at noon Monday through Friday, as well as community outreach programs, public concerts, and other events, including the Salk Science and Music Series.
