Exhibition: Louis Kahn: The Power of Architecture
31 January 2017, The San Diego Museum of Art, San Diego, US
Louis Kahn: The Power of Architecture is the first retrospective of Louis Kahnīs work in two decades, presenting over 200 objects related to Kahnīs selected buildings and projects in the form of architectural models, plans, original drawings, photographs, films and more. With complex spatial compositions and a mastery of light, Louis Kahnīs architecture is regarded as a touchstone of 20th century modernism. Dignified, beautiful, and imbued with a powerful universal symbolism, Kahnīs designs remain a testament to his belief that architecture should be monumental and spiritually inspiring. Among his most famous works are the Salk Institute in La Jolla, CA; the Kimbell Art Museum in Forth Worth, TX; and the National Assembly Building in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
