On March 22, Moshe Safdie shared his thoughts on 50 years of practice, as part of his Cooper Hewitt lifetime achievement design award.
From the organizers:
“Architect and 2016 National Design Award winner for Lifetime Achievement Moshe Safdie discusses the four design principles that have guided his work over the past five decades and how they relate to the evolution of architecture in the era of globalization. Safdie sheds light on the ramifications of “megascale” and “megastructure,” examining scale, site, buildability, and purpose in residential, commercial, and institutional projects in the context of the work of contemporary architecture.”
