Moshe Safdie is a leading architect, urban planner, educator, theorist, and author, exploring the essential principles of socially responsible design with a distinct visual language. Beginning with his architectural thesis at McGill University in 1964 and his first built project, the seminal Habitat ’67 in Montréal, Canada, Safdie’s catalogue of work and contributions to the dialogue on sustainable urbanism are unsurpassed in contemporary practice. With his Somerville, Massachusetts–based firm, Safdie Architects, Safdie’s recent projects include Mamilla Center in Jerusalem, Israel; Marina Bay Sands in Singapore; Khalsa Heritage Centre in Punjab, India; and the United States Institute of Peace Headquarters in Washington, DC. Safdie has been recognized widely for his enduring influence on the built environment with awards including the 2015 AIA Gold Medal. He continues to inspire the theory and application of ideas about housing, mixed use and high density in cities around the world. Read Less
