Moshe Safdie: Architect of the future
from Canadian Jewish News
An outstanding figure in the world of architecture and urban planning, Moshe Safdie was a pioneer of revolutionary conceptual approaches and avant-garde construction techniques that have contributed greatly to an original response to the everlasting problems of urban housing. He was born in Haifa in 1938 and immigrated to Canada with his family when he was 15. In 1960, when he was doing graduate studies in the faculty of architecture at McGill University in Montreal, Safdie, then 22, developed an interest in different housing systems.
