Louis Kahn: The Power of Architecture

August 11, 2017
through November 5, 2017

The story of master architect Louis Kahn is intrinsically connected to Philadelphia, where he spent most of his life and career. Louis Kahn: The Power of Architecture is the first major retrospective of Kahn’s work in two decades, encompassing over 200 objects related to Kahn’s buildings and projects. With complex spatial compositions and a choreographic mastery of light, Kahn created buildings of archaic beauty and powerful universal symbolism. The Fabric Workshop and Museum is the final venue of this exhibition’s international tour.
