Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
Join Sundaram Tagore, Director of Louis Kahn’s Tiger City for a talk and short screening of his feature-length documentary about the world-renowned architect Louis I. Kahn and his parliamentary project in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
Directed by Sundaram Tagore, he spent seven year traveling in Kahn’s footsteps to discover how this American architect built a daringly modern and monumental capitol complex in a war-torn country. This very personal 14-country odyssey delves into Bangladesh’s quest for democracy, how Kahn brilliantly wove together European and South-Asian forms, and the power of great architecture to embody the highest ideals.
The film features Academy Award-winning actress Debra Winger and architects Steven Holl and Pritzker Prize-winner B. V. Doshi.
