The story of master architect Louis Kahn (1901-1974) is intrinsically connected to Philadelphia, where he spent most of his life and career. With complex spatial compositions and a choreographic mastery of light, Kahn created buildings of archaic beauty and powerful universal symbolism. This landmark exhibition, organized by the Vitra Design Museum (Weil am Rhein, Germany), is the first major retrospective of Kahn’s work in twenty years and offers new insight into the famed architect’s methods and inspiration through more than 200 objects and ephemeral items. The Fabric Workshop and Museum is proud to be the final venue of the international tour.

«Louis Kahn: The Power of Architecture» is an exhibition of the Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein, Germany in collaboration with the Architectural Archives of the University of Pennsylvania School of Design, Philadelphia, and the NAI part of The New Institute, Rotterdam. The exhibition is globally sponsored by Swarovski.
