The sublime work of Louis Kahn for the Four Freedoms Park in New York, opened  to the public a 40 years after it was designed to celebrate the life and work of American President Franklin Roosevelt. The park itself is named after a speech he made in 1941 calling for the freedom of speech, the freedom of worship, freedom from want and freedom from fear. Freedoms as important then as they are today.
