Center for Architecture Foundation
Located in the West Village at public gallery space The Center for Architecture, The Center for Architecture Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting a broader appreciation of the built environment through educational programs and scholarship.
On Thursday, November 17, the Center for Architecture Foundation will screen ARCHITECT, a Pulitzer Prize-winning chamber opera based on the life and work of Louis Kahn, a major figure in twentieth-century architecture. Kahn often asserted that "to hear a sound is to see a space," and the piece is inspired by composers' and librettists' efforts to capture the "sounding spaces" they encountered in Kahn's buildings.
