The Projects of Moshe Safdie, 2008–2013
Israeli-born, Canadian-raised, and Boston-based architect Moshe Safdie has built dozens of celebrated buildings, ranging from the massive Marina Bay Sands resort in Singapore to the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Missouri and the United States Institute of Peace headquarters in Washington, D.C.
The connecting thread between such a diverse array of projects is what the practitioner calls “inherent buildability.” As Safdie told NUVO contributor Christopher Hume, “Architecture is not about building the impossible, which we can do if we have enough money and enough tools and enough computers. It is about building what is appropriate and about attaining beauty through such an approach.” Here, we continue our journey through Safdie’s renowned works with a selection created between the years 2008–2013.
