Film Screening – A Legacy of Mies and King

29 February 2024 at 12:00 pm

101-177 Lombard Avenue


Join us for a noon-hour screening of A Legacy of Mies and King.

This film documents the meticulous renovation of Washington DC’s central library, designed by architect Mies van der Rohe in the 1960s and dedicated to the civil rights leader, Martin Luther King, Jr. The film follows architect Francine Houben as she investigates the past and present to design a ‘library ofthe future’. During her quest, both the building’s namesake and the original architect look critically over her shoulder.

Directed by Nienke Andersson
2017, Netherlands, 62 minutes
