On the Pursuit of Perfection: The Legacy Architecture of Louis I. Kahn

During the mid-century, globally renowned architect Louis I. Kahn (1901-1974) envisioned the design for a chimerical arts campus where the Arts United Center and Fort Wayne Museum of Art presently sit. The Arts United Center, Kahn’s only theater and the only building that was ever realized from his designs of the campus, dramatically exemplifies his numerous pioneering methods. With this exhibition, we take an investigative look at his finalized, complete set of architectural blueprints; we discover the depth of Kahn’s intensive process that lasted almost fifteen years and culminated in a sublime artwork, the Arts United Center.
