LOUIS KAHN. THE SPIRIT OF THE BRICK
27 October – 28 October 2018
The inaugural session of the course within the Mies é Máis cycle was dedicated to the American architect Louis Kahn. Faithful follower of Le Corbusier, Kahn stood out for the use of the material through its simplicity and the search for its own language both with the concrete seen and with the brick. We also had the opportunity to see part of the documentary that one of his children dedicated in which one of his craziest projects was shown: a musical ship.
In the practical part of the session we recreate the large circular gaps present in its architecture and the musical boat mentioned above.
