Moshe Safdie and Wallace Shawn

Haifa-born architect Moshe Safdie, who revolutionized urban spaces, designed Yad Vashem and Jerusalem’s Mamilla Mall, has been awarded the America Institute of Architects (AIA) Gold Medal for 2015. The award is considered to be the highest honor for architects and his name will be carved into the Wall of Honor in the AIA offices in Washington, D.C., as reported by the Boston Globe.

He made his name in Montreal with the Habitat 67 in 1967 that featured pre-fabricated, three dimensional units for living and won the Construction Man of the year in 1967. His geometrical designs, use of windows, curves and geometrical shapes as well as incorporation green spaces in his creations are trademarks of Safdie’s style. More recently, Safdie worked on the expansion of the Peabody Essex Museum in 2003.
