During forty years of practice, Safdie has designed cultural, educational, and civic institutions, housing, mixed-use complexes and airports, and has developed designs for existing urban districts and entirely new cities. In this two-volume monograph, more than eighty of his projects are illustrated with spectacular photography, original design sketches, and text. Volume One features an essay by Safdie on his architecture and influences, and texts by Paul Goldberg, Peter G. Rowe, Witold Rybczynski and Michael Sorkin. The projects include his seminal Habitat project for the Canadian Expo 67, the National Gallery of Canada, Hebrew Union College and the restoration of the Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem- the Skirball Museum and Cultural Center in Los Angeles- housing in the US and Southeast Asia- and urban designs for Montreal, Senegal, and Singapore.
