Moshe Safdie: Hero of Habitat

Postby Paul Clerkin » Fri May 27, 2005 8:04 pm

Moshe Safdie achieved worldwide fame when his sensational Habitat pavilion was the showcase of Expo 67. The visionary architect went on to design some of the country's best-known buildings, including the National Gallery of Canada, Vancouver's Library Square and the massive rebuild of Toronto's Pearson Airport. Millions of Canadians experience the power of his architecture daily. CBC looks at Safdie's career.

Just how big is this guy in Canada?


Both his work and ideas look impressive.

Hardly a household name - I think he works mainly in Israel now, but am open to correction on it.
