Get a firsthand look at the mind of one of America’s greatest architects at a new exhibit at Bellevue Arts Museum. Louis Kahn: The Power of Architecture features original drawings, photographs, and even films, giving visitors a glimpse into what it really takes to design buildings from the ground up.

Louis Kahn is one of the most distinguished architects of the twentieth century, responsible for stunning structures like the Kimbell Art Museum in Texas, the Salk Institute in California, and the National Assembly Building in Bangladesh. He has been praised for his ability to bend light and space to create buildings that transcend time and cross cultures, ranking him among greats like Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier.

Be one of the first to witness Kahn’s great works as BAM is the first museum in the United States to host this international exhibit. “This is an incredibly relevant concept for our region during this time of growth and expansion,” said Stefano Catalani, BAM Director of Art, Craft, & Design in a press release. “Kahn distinguished himself by demonstrating the role of architecture in transforming community into an experience.”

Louis Kahn: The Power of Architecture opens at BAM on January 29 and will be on display through May 1. Learn more at http://www.bellevuearts.org/exhibitions/louis_kahn.html
