Planning and Design Centre Movie Night “My Architect” - July 23rd, 7:00 P.M.

Tonight (Thursday, July 23rd), the Planning and Design Centre (PDC) will be hosting a movie night and panel discussion at the Ralph M. Medjuk Building (Dalhousie Architecture and Planning) at 5410 Spring Garden Road. The film is My Architect, a documentary about modernist architect Louis Kahn’s architecture, and his son’s journey to connect with his father’s legacy.

The evening will begin with a panel discussion at 7:00 P.M. Professor Steven Mannell and HRM Heritage Planner Bill Plaskett will speak for 30 minutes about the film, modernist architecture, and heritage planning in Halifax. The film will follow the panel discussion.

Admission (including popcorn) is free, and donations to the Planning and Design Centre are welcome. We look forward to a great turnout and to a lively discussion.
