Art History Festival | How Architect Louis Kahn Enshrined Democracy in Concrete

Against all odds, American architect Louis Kahn designed a dazzling parliamentary complex in newly independent war-torn Bangladesh. Art historian and filmmaker Sundaram Tagore, who spent seven years following in Kahn’s footsteps exploring the wealth of architectural forms—from Rome to India—that inspired his achievement, will talk about the aesthetic and philosophical impact of these epic buildings, and show his documentary Louis Kahn’s Tiger City.

Sundaram Tagore is a Calcutta-born Oxford-educated art historian, gallerist, and an award-winning filmmaker.
