Sundaram will show clips from Louis Kahn’s Tiger City, a feature-length documentary about the world-renowned architect Louis I. Kahn and his parliamentary project in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
Sundaram spent seven years traveling in Kahn’s footsteps to discover how this American architect built a daringly modern and monumental capitol complex in a war-torn country. This very personal 14-country odyssey delves into Bangladesh’s quest for democracy, how Kahn brilliantly wove together Eastern and Western forms, and the power of great architecture to embody the highest ideals.
The film features Academy Award-winning actress Debra Winger and architects Steven Holl and Pritzker Prize-winner B. V. Doshi.
The Q & A will be moderated by Iris Manzanares Murillo, Ambassador of the Republic of Costa Rica.
This event is free and open to the public. However seating is limited so kindly RSVP.
Venue: Sundaram Tagore Gallery, 5 Lock Road 01-05, Gillman Barracks, Singapore 108933
When: 3 Nov 2018, 3.30pm - 6pm
