Since Habitat, his seminal experimental housing project constructed for Montreal's Expo 67, Safdie has continued to contribute meaningfully to the development of many building types. Moshe Safdie: Volume Two
features an essay by Safdie presenting his thoughts on the significant issues facing architecture today. Complementing this essay are texts by William J. Mitchell, on global practice responding to a wide range of varied local conditions, and Thomas Fisher, on Safdie's books, which, like his buildings, continue to influence the international architecture community. Featured projects include the Salt Lake City Main Public Library, the US Institute of Peace Headquarters and the Peabody Essex Museum in the USA; the Holocaust History Museum at Yad Vashem, the Yitzhak Rabin Center and the new city of Modi'in in Israel; the Khalsa Heritage Memorial Complex in India and the Guangdong Science Center and the Guangzhou No. 2 Children's Palace in China.
