Monday Inspiration: Moshe Safdie

A world-renowned modernist architect, Moshe Safdie is responsible for some of the most visually interesting museums and buildings in the country and around the world.

His first, and probably most popular, work is Habitat 67 in Montreal, which pioneered the design and implementation of three-dimensional, prefabricated units for living.

Safdie is also behind one of my favorite museums, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. I love the museum’s design and its use of the natural space around it. The buildings seemed to be a part of the landscape.

Safdie’s work is known for its dramatic curves, large windows, geometric shapes and open and green spaces. His work inspires me to create beautifully designed, standout, and functional spaces that my clients will love.

How do your favorite buildings inspire you?

 

Warmly,
