Moshe Safdie gave the opening keynote address at the 2018 National Architecture Conference, presented by the Australian Institute of Architects. The two-day conference is the largest annual gathering for the profession in the country, and this year focused on the ability for architecture to affect massive change, particularly on the quality of life on the edge.
In the lecture ‘Humanizing the Megascale and Repossessing the Public Realm’ Safdie explored a range of building typologies that have emerged in the firm’s work to address the need for open and porous developments that contribute to the public realm, while simultaneously rising to the challenges of densification in the city.
