Throughout his career as architect, urban planner, educator, theorist, and author, Moshe Safdie has been recognized for his humane design philosophy. Informed by the geographic, social, and cultural elements that define a place, many of his buildings have become beloved regional and national landmarks. From Habitat ’67 in Montreal to the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Arkansas, to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem, his designs respond to human needs and aspirations, creating meaningful, inclusive spaces that enhance community.
Safdie discusses his career, design philosophy, and a selection of his recent works, including the United States Institute of Peace Headquarters (Washington, DC); Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts (Kansas City, Missouri); Khalsa Heritage Centre (India); and the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art (Bentonville, Arkansas).
