Building Dhaka: An Exploration of Louis Kahn’s masterwork, the Capital of Bangladesh,
Shar-e-bangla Nagar, Dhaka

Introduced by Nathaniel Kahn and moderated by William Whitaker, Curator, Architectural Archives of the University of Pennsylvania, PennDesign has invited Louis Kahn’s colleagues for a lively discussion about the design and building of the Capital of Bangladesh. They will focus on the development of the design during Kahn’s lifetime, as well as the challenge of completing the project after his death. A showing of Nathaniel Kahn’s new short film about Dhaka will be a special introduction to this seminar.
