MyArchitectBBBB

(out of 5)


, son of celebrated architect , explores his father’s professional legacy and the relationship he was robbed of when Louis died of a heart attack, alone and bankrupt at Penn Station, when Nathaniel was only 11. Louis, who was married to another woman when he met Nathaniel’s mother and had a child with her, didn’t spend a huge amount of time with his second family, so years later his son has made this powerful documentary in an effort to explore the innovative architect’s buildings from all around the world and get to know him better. What Nathaniel discovers is an entire world full of people whose lives have been affected, altered and even improved by having known the man or spent time in his buildings. Kahn, Jr.’s work here is a fantastic record of architectural genius while also probing the role that creative energy plays in our lives and relationships.
