LOUIS KAHN is considered by many architectural historians to be the most important architect of the 20th century. He left behind a brilliant legacy of intensely powerful and spiritual buildings - geometric compositions of brick, concrete and light, that in the words of the L.A. Times "change your life." In MY ARCHITECT, Kahn's only son, Nathaniel, sets out on an epic journey to reconcile his father's life and work. I.M. Pei, Frank Gehry and Philip Johnson speak movingly of Kahn's work (the Salk Institute, the Exeter Library the Kimbell Art Museum, the Capital Complex of Bangladesh) and the women and children in his life shed light on this secretive, man - a dynamo who gave selflessly to his art.
