Continuing to expand the frontiers of thought and imagination with eloquence and mastery, Moshe Safdie is one of Canada's most celebrated architects. The National Gallery of Canada, the Quebec Museum of Civilization, Vancouver's Library Square and Toronto's Lester B. Pearson International Airport take their place in the constellation of his work, alongside major cultural and educational commissions that can be found around the world.
