ARCHITECTURE-ARQUITECTURA TODAY:Major Exhibition Explores the Mastery of Moshe Safdie and a Lifetime of Architectural Achievements




OTTAWA.- Architectural visionary, successful entrepreneur and humanist are all words that describe one of Canada’s most renowned architects, Moshe Safdie. Opened to the public at the National Gallery of Canada (NGC) on October 6, 2010 and on view until January 9, 2011, Global Citizen: The Architecture of Moshe Safdie is the most comprehensive retrospective of his work to date and celebrates over 40 years of his remarkable achievements and contributions to city skylines, civic buildings and personal habitats. Organized by the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Arkansas and the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles (both designed by Moshe Safdie), and curated by Donald Albrecht, an independent curator and curator of Architecture and Design at the Museum of the City of New York, this exhibition takes an unprecedented look at Safdie’s work and philosophy. It also illustrates his extraordinary career as a leading architect, urban planner, theorist, educator, and author. After its presentation in Ottawa, Global Citizen will go on tour to Chicago, Los Angeles, and Bentonville, Arkansas.
