About this title

Synopsis:

Moshe Safdie's architecture displays a richly evolving tectonic and spatial sensibility. During forty years of practice, Safdie has designed cultural, educational, and civic institutions, housing, mixed-use complexes and airports, and has developed designs for existing urban districts and entirely new cities. In this two-volume monograph, more than eighty of his projects are illustrated with spectacular photography, original design sketches, and text. Volume One features an essay by Safdie on his architecture and influences, and texts by Paul Goldberg, Peter G. Rowe, Witold Rybczynski and Michael Sorkin. The projects include his seminal Habitat project for the Canadian Expo '67, the National Gallery of Canada, Hebrew Union College and the restoration of the Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem; the Skirball Museum and Cultural Center in Los Angeles; housing in the US and Southeast Asia; and urban designs for Montreal, Senegal, and Singapore. Forthcoming, 2008: Moshe Safdie II ISBN 10: 1864701633 I

From the Inside Flap:

Moshe Safdie Edited by Wendy Kohn Influenced by the diverse cultures of Canada, Israel and the USA, Moshe Safdie's architecture displays a richly evolving tectonic and spatial sensibility. During 30 years of practice, he has designed public institutions, housing and mixed-use complexes, and developed designs for both existing urban districts and entirely new cities. In this monograph more than 40 of his projects are illustrated with spectacular photography, original design sketches and text. These works include his seminal Habitat project for the Canadian Expo '67, the National Gallery of Canada, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and Vancouver's Library Square in Canada; the Yad Vashem Children's Holocaust Memorial, the Restoration of the Jewish Quarter, Mamilla Center and Hebrew Union College in the city of Jerusalem; the Skirball Museum and Cultural Center in Los Angeles; and urban designs for Montreal, Senegal, Singapore and the new city of Modi'in in Israel. Together, they demonstrate the depth of Safdie's work, and an architectural vocabulary full of light and colour. In his essay 'The Language and Medium of Architecture' and in an interview with Wendy Kohn, Moshe Safdie discusses his architecture and influences. Each of the essays, by Michael Sorkin, Paul Goldberger, Witold Rybczynski and Peter G Rowe, covers a different facet of Safdie's architectural Oeuvre.
