Moshe
Safdie

6 OCTober 2010 - 9 JANuary 2011

The exhibition Global Citizen: The Architecture of Moshe Safdie explores Moshe Safdie’s structures and the philosophy that shapes them through approximately 175 drawings, sketches, videos, photographs and scale models.

Discover how the world-renowned Israeli-born architect, who has studied in Montreal, has conceived impressive buildings and avant-garde communities in Canada, the United States and across the world.

His use of transcendent light, powerful geometry and iconic forms is recognizable in buildings such as the National Gallery of Canada (Ottawa), Habitat 67 (Montreal), the United States Institute of Peace Headquarters (Washington, DC), Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art (Arkansas), Mamilla Center (Jerusalem), the Khalsa Heritage Centre (India) and Marina Bay Sands (Singapore).

Organized by the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, Arkansas, and the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles.
