Moshe Safdie is an architect and urban designer. He designed The Habitat 67 project, a complex of cellular residences that could be lifted into place like LEGO blocks, which made him known around the world. In 1967, he returned to Israel, where he was part of the team that refurnished Old Jerusalem.
He was a professor at Harvard University and was made an Officer of the Order of Canada and was promoted to Companion in 2005. His company, Moshe Safdie & Associates, is based out of Boston with branch offices in Toronto and Jerusalem. His works are known for their dramatic curves, arrays of simple geometric patterns, and usage of windows and open spaces.
