Scale, Complexity & Beauty in Architecture


World-renowned architect Moshe Safdie has gifted his alma mater his archives and his personal Habitat 67 condo – located in the iconic complex he designed on the Expo 67 site in Montreal. The collection destined for McGill University is composed of more than 100,000 items, including sketchbooks, models and drawings of the projects he has built around the world, which will give students insights into his architectural process from design to completion. At ideacity, in our second year, he gave our audience a lesson on his use of materials to bring light and structure to buildings designed to adapt over seasons and improve over time to suit their purposes.
