Moshe Safdie I
Moshe Safdie I by Paul Goldberger
Book DescriptionInfluenced by the diverse cultures of Canada, Israel and the USA, Moshe Safdie's architecture displays a richly evolving tectonic and spatial sensibility. During 40 years of practice, Safdie has designed cultural, educational, and civic institutions, housing, mixed-use complexes and airports, and has developed designs for existing urban districts and entirely new cities. In this two-volume monograph, more than eighty of his projects are illustrated with spectacular photography, original design sketches and text.Volume One features an essay by Safdie on his architecture and influences. Each of the essays by Paul Goldberger, Peter G. Rowe, Witold Rybczynski and Michael Sorkin cover a different facet of Safdie's oeuvre. The projects include his seminal Habitat project for the Canadian Expo '67, the National Gallery of Canada, Hebrew Union College and the restoration of the Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem; the Skirball Museum and Cultural Center in Los Angeles; housing in the USA and Southeast Asia; and urban designs for Montreal, Senegal, Singapore and the new city of Modi'in in Israel.
