The Design Museum presents its latest bold exhibition, Louis Kahn: The Power of Architecture.

Best known amongst his peers as a visionary architect, Kahn was an expert manipulator of form and light, and a creator of uniquely dramatic buildings. Using models, original drawings, sketches, photographs and films, this timely show aims to fully represent each iconic construction project. These range from the bright spaces of the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, to the grand form of the National Assembly Building in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Kahn himself drew on a wide range of sources, from ancient ruins to the work of Le Corbusier, believing that architects have an important social responsibility. The Power of Architecture aims to bring one of the twentieth century's greatest master builders to a much wider audience.
