Bilocation Syndrome
Did Kahn 'research' St. Catherine de Ricci while designing the Dominican Motherhouse of the Sisters of St. Catherine de Ricci? Who knows? There is a sense of bilocation in the design of the Fisher House (1960-69), and even earlier in the Fruchter House (1951-54) and the Trenton Jewish Community Center Day Camp (1954-59). It's probably just a strange twist of fate that these senses of bilocation came to a maturity within the design of the Dominican Motherhouse of the Sisters of St. Catherine de Ricci.
