My Architect is a heartbreaking yet humorous journey as Nathaniel travels the world in an attempt to reconnect with his deceased father. This riveting narrative goes from the men’s room in Penn Station where Kahn died bankrupt and alone, to the roiling streets of Bangladesh, the inner sanctums of Jerusalem politics and through unforgettable encounters with the world’s most celebrated architects. In a documentary with all the emotional impacts of a dramatic feature film, including an original orchestral score, Nathaniel’s journey becomes a universal investigation of identity and a celebration of art and life itself.

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
