Louis Kahn at the Design Museum
Date Posted: 17/04/14
Visitors interested in architecture should head to the Design Museum in London from July 9th to October 12th, where there will be a new exhibition about legendary architect Louis Kahn.
Louis Kahn: The Power of Architecture will explore Kahn’s work and legacy and show how he created unique buildings by manipulating form and light.
It will feature architectural models, original drawings, travel sketches, photographs and films, documenting his career and looking at themes of The World as Structure, Ruins and Archetypes, Grounding and Community.
Among the most famous buildings Kahn designed are the Roosevelt Memorial (1973-74), which was posthumously completed in October 2012; The Salk Institute in La Jolla, California; the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas; and the National Assembly Building in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
See the new exhibition during a London city break and discover what else the Design Museum has to offer.
