"From the Ted Talk by Nathaniel Kahn: Scenes from "My Architect""

Unscramble the Blue Letters

There are two cipls I want to show you, the first one is a kind of hgogpoddee, its just three little moments, four little moments with three of the people who are here tonight. It's not the way they occur in the film, because they are part of much larger scenes. They play off each other in a wonderful way. And that ends with a little clip of my father, of Lou, tilnkag about something that is very dear to him, which is the aedcnctis of life. I think he felt that the greatest things in life were accidental, and perhaps not planned at all. And those three clips will be followed by a scene of perhaps what, to me, is really his greatest building which is a bdilnuig in Dhaka, Bangladesh. He built the capital over there. And I think you'll enojy this building, it's never been seen — it's been still photographed, but never photographed by a film crew. We were the first film crew in there.

Original Text

There are two clips I want to show you, the first one is a kind of hodgepodge, its just three little moments, four little moments with three of the people who are here tonight. It's not the way they occur in the film, because they are part of much larger scenes. They play off each other in a wonderful way. And that ends with a little clip of my father, of Lou, talking about something that is very dear to him, which is the accidents of life. I think he felt that the greatest things in life were accidental, and perhaps not planned at all. And those three clips will be followed by a scene of perhaps what, to me, is really his greatest building which is a building in Dhaka, Bangladesh. He built the capital over there. And I think you'll enjoy this building, it's never been seen — it's been still photographed, but never photographed by a film crew. We were the first film crew in there.
