Coming to Light: The Louis I. Kahn Memorial to Franklin D. Roosevelt for New York City
10 January – 15 February 2005
Coming to Light brings together Kahn's original drawings for the Roosevelt Memorial and the full set of construction documents and specifications completed with the support of the office of Mitchell/Giurgola Architects and David Wisdom Architect after Kahn's death in March 1974. We are also privileged to be able to include a Kahn sketchbook that contains exquisite drawings and notes, which has never been previously exhibited. What has emerged from the assembly of these materials is a provocative position regarding the memorial: that a project which had been commissioned, sited, designed, revised, developed, detailed, and fully drawn and specified over thirty years ago might finally be ready to be built.
