Summary: Moshe Safdie is an innovative and original voice in architecture and urban design The third volume in a highly successful set of titles Explores how architects can mitigate the effects of high-density urban living and enhance the quality of life in our cities and neighbourhoods Safdie Architects is an international architectural and urban planning practice founded and led by Moshe Safdie. Deeply committed to the creation of architecture that responds to local and regional characteristics of landscape, climate, cultural heritage, and contemporary life, Safdie is recognised for creating welcoming buildings and public spaces that contribute in meaningful ways to their setting while catalysing a vibrant public life. Safdie is a comprehensive volume that traces the evolution of Safdie's planning and design work over the past 50 years, with a complete chronology of projects since the inception of his wide-ranging and influential practice. Organised to follow both thematic and chronological explorations, this monograph is the third volume by IMAGES Publishing to chronicle the work of this prolific architect, urban planner, educator, theorist, and author. Influenced by the diverse cultures of Canada, Israel and the United States, Moshe Safdie's architecture displays a richly evolving tectonic and spatial sensibility. A leading practitioner in the field, during several decades of practice Safdie has designed public institutions, housing and mixed-use complexes, including the highly acclaimed Habitat project, and has developed designs for both existing urban districts and entirely new cities.
