2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the death of American architect Louis Kahn, whose projects were considered as important as those of Le Corbusier or Mies van der Rohe. This year, too, sees the award of Britain's Royal Gold Medal to historian and critic Joseph Rykwert, whose writing has had a major impact on the thinking of architects and designers. In this special event Rykwert looks back at Kahn and reflects on his contribution to the form of architecture and the all-important nature of the contemporary city.
