What Makes A Building Unique?Streaming Video - 2012
Moshe Safdie's buildings - from grand libraries to intimate apartment complexes - explore the qualities of light and the nature of private and public space. A citizen of Canada, Israel, and the United States, architect Safdie quickly developed a cult following with his modular "Habitat" apartments for the Montreal Expo in 1967. His popular architectural masterpieces include the National Gallery in Ottowa, the Children's Memorial and the Memorial to the Deportees for the Holocaust museum in Jerusalem, and the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts. In this TEDTalk, Safdie looks back on his illustrious career and delves into four of his design projects, explaining how he labored to make each one truly unique for its site and its users.
