Internationally renowned architect Moshe Safdie is committed to architecture that supports and enhances a project’s program; that is informed by the geographic, social, and cultural elements that define a place; and that responds to human needs and aspirations.
Members-only Moshe Safdie Lecture, July 28, 2017
In 1978, after teaching at Yale, Safdie relocated his residence and principal office to Boston where he also served as the Director of the Urban Design Program at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, and subsequently was the Ian Woodner Professor of Architecture and Urban Design. Safdie has written numerous books and received many awards, honorary degrees, and other recognitions for his work as an architect, urban planner, educator, and author.
Based in Boston with offices in Toronto, Jerusalem, and Singapore, Safdie has designed and realized a wide range of projects around the world. Many of his buildings have become beloved regional and national landmarks, including Habitat 67, Montreal, Canada; Peabody Essex Museum, Salem, Massachusetts; Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles, California; the National Gallery of Canada; and Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum, Jerusalem, Israel.
