Moshe Safdie, Global Citizen

Safdie

Over the course of his 50+ year career, Moshe Safdie has realized the desires and aspirations of a wide range of different communities—and people—he serves, while also confronting the broader challenges of urban life. An exhibition of his varied international projects, currently showing at New York City’s National Academy on the Upper East Side, explores his distinctive work. The re-envisioned exhibition explores in particular what it means to create livable urban spaces, an aspect of Moshe’s career that stretches from his famous Habitat ’67 to the Yad Vashem holocaust museum in Jerusalem, and that he is now addressing with renewed vigor in today’s increasingly populous global cities.
