Description- Louis Kahn’s Tiger City (117 min; 2017; Blu-ray; English)
Film by Sundaram Tagore who will introduce the screening
Screening will be followed by a discussion
A rough-cut of the film on the architect Louis Kahn and his famous parliamentary complex in Bangladesh, Sher-e-Bangla Nagor, also known as the Tiger City. A worldwide quest to more than fourteen countries to find out how this Estonian-born American architect built such a daringly modern and monumental complex in a culturally rich but economically shattered country. How did he win such a high-profile commission ten thousand miles from his home in Philadelphia? What force of will enabled him to design a capital complex on the tabula rasa of the rice paddies of Bangladesh?
