Moshe Safdie: Volume I

Images Publishing

  • Influenced by the diverse cultures of Canada, Israel and the USA, Moshe Safdie's architecture displays a rich and 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 developments for existing urban districts and entirely new cities.

    This two-volume monograph illustrates more than 80 of his projects with spectacular photography, original design sketches and detailed text.

    Moshe Safdie: Volume One features an essay by Safdie on his architecture and influences. The essays by Paul Goldberger, Peter G. Rowe, Witold Rybczynski and Michael Sorkin each cover a different facet of Safdies oeuvre.

    Projects include his seminal Habitat project for Expo 67, the National Gallery of Canada, Hebrew Union College, restoration of the Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem, housing in the USA and Southeast Asia, and urban designs for Montreal, Senegal, Singapore and the new city of Modiin, Israel.
