grischa rueschendorf captures louis kahn

Photo of the book from here.
In the small, busy interior of Club 71 in Hong Kong my friend Oriana introduced me to the German photographer Grischa Rueschendorf who had just happened to finish a book on Louis Kahn's parliament building in Dhaka, Bangladesh. From his bag, Grischa pulled a draft of the book, which was filled with beautiful photos of this rarely photographed or seen architectural masterpiece, also know as "one of the wonders of modern architecture." Updates from my parents' splendid travels around Iran and Turkey (which most recently show a visit to Kahn's Indian Institute of Management) reminded me of this encounter. The book - a treasure for any follower of Louis Kahn - can be purchased here.
