Embracing a comprehensive and humane design philosophy, Safdie is committed to architecture that supports and enhances a project’s program; that is informed by the geographic, social, and cultural elements that define a place; and that responds to human needs and aspirations. Safdie has completed a wide range of projects, including cultural, educational, and civic institutions; neighborhoods and public parks; mixed-use urban centers and airports; master plans for existing communities and entirely new cities worldwide.
Major current and recent projects by Safdie Architects include Mamilla Alrov Center in Jerusalem; Marina Bay Sands resort in Singapore; Khalsa Heritage Memorial Complex in Punjab, India; US Institute of Peace Headquarters in Washington, DC; the National Campus for the Archeology of Israel; the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Missouri; and the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Arkansas.
