Moshe Safdie: Profile


An Israeli/Canadian/American architect and urban designer. Born in Haifa, Safdie moved to Montreal with his family as a teenager, studied architecture at McGill University and received his master's degree there. In the early 1960s, the city commissioned him to build Habitat 67 for the Montreal World Expo 67. This project was based on Safdie master's thesis and despite its flaws (the buildings were never completed as per the original plan), it would earn him worldwide acclaim.
