Running time: 116 mins

An AA Members' Screening of a film by Nathaniel Kahn, My Architect, 2003


Director Nathaniel Kahn barely knew his father, but many throughout the world did. He was renowned architect Louis Kahn, who designed noteworthy buildings in California, Texas and even Bangladesh. Nathaniel explores his father's past, interviewing architects such as Frank O. Gehry, as well as members of the multiple families started by the philandering Louis. What emerges is a portrait of a brilliant but unreliable man whose creations, which are featured prominently in the film, still astound.

Only open to AA Students and Members

The AA Cinema has limited seating so early arrival is recommended.
