Summary
Moshe Safdie was born in the Palestinian city of Haifa in 1938, moving to Montreal with his family at the age of 15. Success came early when his student thesis project was accepted as the principle exhibit in the 1967 Expo in Montreal. Habitat '67, an innovative stacked housing system, remains his most famous building, despite the many prestige commissions that have followed. In this talk, Moshe Safdie discusses Marina Bay Sands - a massive casino complex in Singapore that consists of three towers topped by a daring cantilevered Sky Park, a low-rise conference centre and a museum building inspired by a lotus flower. Marina Bay is Safdie's attempt to humanise a mega-scale project and weave it into the existing urban fabric. You can also hear Safdie talk about his work in Jerusalem in Safdie In Jerusalem, and tracing his career in Habitat & Beyond
