Fort Wayne Performing Arts Theater
Turkish photographer Cemal Emden captures the Performing Arts Theater, one of the three cultural venues realized by Louis Kahn in Fort Wayne, Indiana (1959-73).
“I am building a theater in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and having observed theaters, I came to the conclusion that one must regard the auditorium and the stage as a violin, a sensitive instrument where one should be able to hear, even a whisper, without any amplification. The lobbies and all other adjunct spaces may be compared to the violin case. The violin and its case are completely different.”
