The Meeting HOUSE at the Salk Institute is one of Kahn’s most meticulously designed unbuilt plans. While designing the Salk Institute laboratories (1965) Kahn developed a counterpoint to the laboratory design with the design of the Meeting Place. For Kahn, the Meeting Place would bring balance to the laboratories of the Salk Institute, and stated that “if the laboratories were the Salk Institute’s lungs, then the Meeting Place would be its brain.”the proposed building, part of a larger complex sits on a generous cliff edge, overlooking the ocean. main functional spaces were located facing the ocean. hence, the conceptual organisation and site location were embarked on keeping in mind the various aspects.
