My Architect

       Louis Kahn不就是擅长在砖墙上开大洞吗,哪能就被捧成了神?My Architect由康 三奶的儿子Nathaniel拍成,获奥斯卡纪录片提名。此片拍摄取景、音乐都颇有特色,小康真情坦诚,比他爸有魅力。片中访问康同时代的伟人,Edmond Bacon, Vincent Scully, Philip Johnson, I M Pei, Frank Gehry, Paul Goldberger … …, 全是二十世纪美国建筑的活化石。康的设计,摆在今天,统统是中小型项目,贝先生的作品比他伟大得多。观诸康的作品,只有两个有点意思,一是宾州大学的医学实验楼,二是Salk Institute. 这两个楼对后来者 包括贝先生都颇有启发。

   康的二奶Anne 光彩照人,三奶纯情天真,两个有才华的女专业人士竟围着这个小老头转,为他生子,等他每周来吃晚饭,烧五道菜,做幕后画图英雄。她们对小康镜头前说的话,让人怀疑到了大红灯笼高挂的乔家大院。1990年代初,Salk Institute 要在面海处加建楼,遭到大帮名人反对,联名信中就包括了老大、老二、老三,当然还有Venturi and Scott Brown 等等。

     1989年,Anne Tynn 名媛到港大演讲,The world of Louis Kahn, 阿理有幸在台下恭听,Anne 风采依旧。这样的能人,阿理领教过。

   这一下,又是二十年过去了。

    Run Run: I was thinking of using the video in the seminar, but finally gave up. Students may learn little architecture from the movie.
    Lyc同学:康的建筑,若无环境衬托,看来和西环的唐楼差不多。十几年前在美国看就如此,现在怕更加残旧。
