In the 1960’s, Louis I. Kahn taught distinctive design philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania and built a new kind of modern architecture. Charlie Dagit was an undergraduate at Penn, a member of Kahn’s famous one-year master’s studio, and an architect in the office of Aldo Giurgola.
Fast-forward 50+ years later and Dagit gives us a vivid, first-person account of one of the greatest chapters in architectural history. The author of Louis I Kahn– Architect: Remembering the Man and Those Who Surrounded Him, will visit Radnor Memorial Library on Tuesday, October 28 at 7:30pm.
Charles E. Dagit, Jr. taught at Temple University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Drexel University, where he is now a thesis advisor as well as conductor of a seminar on American Architectural History. Awarded the American Institute of Architects Pennsylvania’s Medal of Distinction, his work has been published in Progressive Architect, Interiors Magazine, and Yale Perspecta.
Books will be available for purchase at the event.
We are all looking forward to this event and hope you will join us!
