Louis Kahn's Modernism & the Architecture of Memorialization

October 12, 2019

This tour, organized by Four Freedoms Park Conservancy and DOCOMOMO US, will explore the design philosophy and work of Louis Kahn, his posthumously completed design for the memorial, and issues surrounding public memorialization. The tour will provide insight into the 40-year history of FDR Four Freedoms State Park, from its original conception and design in 1973 to its construction and completion in 2012. Tours will also discuss the Conservancy’s mission and programming, and will provide visitors with a better understanding of this unique public space in New York City. This event is part of DOCOMOMO US Tour Day 2019.
