This American architect is an acknowledged master of modern architecture, like his contemporaries: Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe and Wright.
Kahnâ??s activity (theory, education and work) has also influenced important contemporary architects like Renzo Piano and Frank Gehry.
The exhibition brings together a great deal of the American architectâ??s work. It consists of drawings, sketches, photographs, film material and historical and new scale models in addition to original watercolours painted by Louis Khan during his journeys through North America, Europe and Egypt.
