Tune in to Episode 24 of the PA Talks series with Moshe Safdie, an architect, urban planner, author, educator, and theorist. Over a celebrated 50-year career, Safdie has explored the essential principles of socially responsible design with a distinct visual language. Moshe Safdie graduated from McGill University and after apprenticing with Louis I. Kahn in Philadelphia, he returned to Montréal to oversee the master plan for the 1967 World Exhibition. In 1964 he established his own firm to realize Habitat ’67, an adaptation of his undergraduate thesis and a turning point in modern architecture. Moshe Safdie is the Author of four books and a frequent essayist and lecturer. Safdie’s global practice includes projects in North and South America, the Middle East, the developing world and throughout Asia and Australia. Some of his projects that I’m sure you all know them, are: Habitat 67 in Montreal Canada, Marina Sands Bay, Art Science Museum, Jewel Changi Airport, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and many more amazing projects. In this episode, we discussed Covid-19 lockdown and his story of becoming an architect, establishing his practice, his very first project Habitat 67, humanizing the mega-scale, and more.
