Moshe Safdie delivered the talk Architecture of Belonging: Rising to the Symbolic to a full audience in Charleston, South Carolina. Through sharing the backstories and design principles that guided the creation of several of the firm’s landmark buildings, including the new Medal of Honor Museum planned for Mt. Pleasant, Safdie highlighted the importance of architecture as a catalyst for creating vital and vibrant communities.
The lecture was presented by the Gibbes Museum of Art in collaboration with the National Medal of Honor Museum and The Jewish Federation of Charleston. It was held at The Charleston Museum, and immediately followed by Q&A session and a book signing. In addition to Gibbes Museum of Art’s Executive Director Angela Mack, the event was attended by Medal of Honor recipient James A. Taylor and National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation Chairman Bill Phillips.
