About Moshe Safdie
Moshe Safdie is an architect, urban planner, educator, theorist, and author. In 1964 he established his own firm to realize Habitat ‘67, an adaptation of his thesis at McGill, which was the central feature of the World’s Fair and a groundbreaking design in the history of architecture. He has served as Director of the Urban Design Program at Harvard Graduate School of Design, and Ian Woodner Professor of Architecture and Urban Design from 1984 to 1989. In the last three decades he has produced a prolific body of work, including design for six of Canada’s principal public institutions. His more recent works including Mamilla Alrov Center, a dynamic urban center near the Old City in Jerusalem; Khalsa Heritage Memorial Complex, the national museum of the Sikh people in the Punjab, India; the United States Institute of Peace Headquarters in Washington, D.C.; the National Campus for the Archeology of Israel in Jerusalem; and the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City, Missouri. Many of his firm’s buildings have become beloved regional and national landmarks, including the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts. His work has been on display at many world class museums and galleries, and he has been the recipient of numerous awards, honorary degrees, and civil honors, including the Companion Order of Canada and the Gold Medal of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada.
Architecture for Humanity lends time and expertise to help those who cannot otherwise afford these services.
