Per Olaf Fjeld on Louis Kahn -120 at London Festival of Architecture

In 2021, we celebrate the 120th anniversary of the iconic American architect Louis Kahn. This event explores how Kahn’s work continues to form the understanding of timeless modernism today and Kahn’s little-known Nordic ties: early childhood in Estonia, his travels and how his early experiences in Estonia would shape his architectural sensibility.

Panellists:
Heie Treier (Estonia) - art historian, author of ’KAHN - The Islander’, researching connection between Kahn’s work and the medieval architecture of his birthplace – Estonian island Saaremaa.

Per Olaf Fjeld (Norway) - architect, scholar and Kahn’s former student, co-author of ’Louis I. Kahn - the Nordic Latitudes’ with Emily Randall Fjeld.

Elain Harwood (UK) - expert of post-war architecture, currently with Historic England and author of ’Space, Hope and Brutalism: English Architecture, 1945-1975’.

Chair: Owen Hopkins (UK)- director of the Farrell Centre at Newcastle University.

The event is part of the London Festival of Architecture 2021 online programme.

When: Thursday 10 June
