Kahn’s Exeter – Short Film by Alex Roman

This puts things in perspective. Albeit a 3d computer-generated perspective, but still. Louis Kahn’s Exeter Library is one of those projects you diagram at least 100 times for Arch history, studio and other classes while in Architecture school. Alex Roman’s recent animation captures the one thing Kahn was going for; space is potent.
