Architectural historian and McGill faculty member Annmarie Adams penned a review of If Walls Could Speak, calling it an “intimate…very human story” that “gives real insight into a worldwide architectural practice.” The review published by Canadian Architect highlights Moshe Safdie’s professional daily life and the design process of megaprojects. Alongside archival photos pulled from the memoir, Adams discusses Moshe’s belief in the power of place, and his fondness for his model workshop. 

"Little sketches and photos, sometimes in the margins, give the book the feeling of an intimate photo album. It’s a very human story."

— Annmarie Adams, architectural historian
