Moshe Safdie sits down with Plane-Site to talk about the ideas behind his work and the recurring themes of his practice. The video is part of the GAA Foundation supported series and collateral exhibition at La Biennale di Venezia Architettura. This year's theme, opening in May 2018 is entitled Time-Space-Existence.
"As an architect committed to building and impacting the environment, to design without the intention of building is a failure, by deﬁnition, because it’s not architecture. For those who design in order to build, not succeeding in building is not a failure – there are different reasons why things don’t get built, but they form a fascinating track through one’s thoughts and career.”
