Legendary architect Moshe Safdie discusses his remarkable career with Michael Kimmelman, the architecture critic of The New York Times. Safdie created some of the world’s most influential and thoughtful structures, including the modular housing scheme in Montreal known as “Habitat 67”, the Yad Vashem memorial in Israel, the Crystal Bridges Museum in Arkansas and the Jewel Changi airport interior garden and waterfall in Singapore. In his new book, If Walls Could Speak, he sets forth a manifesto for the role architecture should play in society and the service of an architect to the people who live, work in, or experience a building.
