His documentary My Architect, about his father the great architect Louis Kahn, has been nominated for an Academy Award. It's an account of Nathaniel's encounter with his father's double life — Louis Kahn was married with a daughter and had two other children by two different mistresses. It also explores his father's work, with interviews from his peers, including Frank Gehry and I.M. Pei.
