Silence and Light: Louis Kahn
Stills from 'Louis Kahn: Silence and Light' (1995) Directed by Michael Blackwood.
'I can say that I believe that light is the nature of material and that material is spent light.'
'Silence is the feeling that comes over you when you see the pyramids. A voiceless soundless silence, not quiet, but somehow a speaking, which is not speech, which is manifest in the pyramid itself: an indication that there was an inspiration to express. I think man lives to express and there is no other reason for living.' - Louis Kahn
