My Architect: A Son's Journey


Come and join us for another Architecture movie and drink, this February at Horts.

’My Architect: A Son's Journey‘ is a 2003 documentary film about the American architect Louis Kahn (1901-1974), by his son Nathaniel Kahn, detailing the architect's extraordinary career and his familial legacy after his death in 1974.

The film features interviews with renowned architects, including Philip Johnson, Frank Gehry, Shamsul Wares I.M. Pei, Moshe Safdie and Anne Tyng. Throughout the film, Kahn visits all of his father's buildings including The Yale Center for British Art, The Salk Institute, Jatiyo Sangshad Bhaban and the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad.

The film explores Khan's family life which involved his fathering children by three different partners, each of whom was kept in the dark about the existence of his other families.

The Director’s Cut Cinema at Horts in historic Broad Street, Bristol offers a unique and comfortable private cinema experience with large leather lounger seats and footstools.

Supported by the RIBA Local Initiative Fund (LIF). Ticket includes an arrival drink (beer, cider or house wine).
