UAE Parliament to Ehrlich Architects

I wonder if Louis Kahn's design for the Parliament for West Pakistan, 1965, provided any inspiration for the Ehrlich Architect's design.

The Philadelphia School, deterritorialized
It's nice when coincidences spur a story.
the very early 1965 design of the building for the Council of Islamic Ideology at Islamabad...

...which no doubt stems from Kahn's coincident collaboration with Noguchi. Alas, the Levy Memorial Playground and the Council of Islamic Ideology designs were also never executed in built form, but there are two very real, legitimate offspring of these designs in Italy: Institute for Draghtsmen and Library and Cultural Centre.

The Venturi and Rauch designs that come into play here are the three buildings for Princeton Memorial Park, 1966. ...the Entrance and Administration building and the Crypts...

...have an affinity with the architectures of the Levy Memorial Playground and the Council of Islamic Ideology, although Venturi had already used bermed forms within the F.D.R. Memorial competition, 1960.
