"The Library at Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter, NH, has won the Twenty-Five Year award from the American Institute of Architects. The award is bestowed annually on an American work of architecture that has proved its merit over a life of at least a quarter of a century.

The Exeter Library, which opened in 1971, was designed by Louis I. Kahn (1901–74). Kahn accomplished something no one else had quite figured out how to do. He made modern buildings that achieved the timeless, monumental presence of the great works of the past.

Kahn respected books. 'Nobody ever paid the price of a book ; they pay only for the printing', he once said. Exeter is his attempt to embody, in brick and teak and marble and concrete, the essence of a particular kind of institution : the house of books, the library" —Robert Campbell, The Boston Globe, January 11, 1997 This groundbreaking CD-ROM will bring you as close to the Library at Philips Exeter Academy as you can get without actually visiting it.

The disc includes :
- video clips of the library's exterior and interior
- animated plans and sections
- hundreds of exterior and interior color photographs
- audio explanations by the author
- archival audio recordings of Kahn's lectures
- illustrated descriptions of five other projects by Kahn.
