Please join us for the award-winning film My Architect: A Son’s Journey! This remarkable documentary examines Louis Kahn’s bold, modern buildings in loving detail. Kahn was one of the most important architects of the twentieth century. His dramatic death in 1974 – alone and unidentified in the men’s room of New York’s Penn train station – revealed a triple life: in addition to this wife and daughter, Kahn left behind two illegitimate children, by different women with whom he had long-term relationships. As the architect’s only son, director Nathaniel Kahn sought out old acquaintances and relatives of his father making My Architect a startlingly emotional human-interest story. Kahn explores his father’s life with a spirit of generosity and a wonderful sense of objectivity, taking him around America and to Israel, India and finally Bangladesh, to create a profound portrait of a man, an artist, his buildings and his secret lives.
