A Tribute to Louis Kahn’s 20th Century Architectural Icon: The National Assembly Building of Bangladesh
In the early 1960s, Louis I. Kahn was invited by the Pakistani government to design the buildings that would serve as its eastern capital in Dhaka which, after the East Pakistani freedom struggle, became the Capital Complex of Bangladesh.
Sundaram Tagore’s 8-year film-making journey is a tribute Kahn’s famous Parliamentary Complex Sher-e Bangla Nagor, also known as the Tiger City’.
In order to make this feature-length documentary film, Tagore’s quest led him to more than fourteen countries to find out how this visionary American architect built such a daringly modern and monumental complex in Bangladesh.
