Midway through construction, the war broke out. Suddenly there was no country, no government, no one to pay the bills, and certainly no need for a national parliament. The grand, clean contours of Louis Kahn's Bangladesh sangsad bhavan, and his messy, anonymous death in Penn Station men's room from a disease picked up on his last trip-- ---- suspended between two polarities is a third story. Our structure synthesizes Kahn's linguistic apertures: geometry/light/raw material. The wall hybridizes the geometric filigree and monumentality in the Dhaka project by registering defiance of material assumptions. Heavy concrete/polymer fiber slabs, suspended by cables and reflecting a text weave, notate many unstable registers.
