  • Lifetime Achievement Winner
    - Moshe Safdie


    In accepting the LEAF Lifetime Achievement Award in London recently, Moshe Safdie urged the assembled architects, designers, and educators in the building profession to turn their attention to our global cities.


    “Humanizing mega scale is the single most urgent task that awaits us in the decades to come,” Safdie stated. He went on to say, “Neither the privacy of a house, nor the community of a village, are possible now without major new inventions which transcend individual buildings. They demand a new urban vision.”


    Citing the pressing issues that architects must tackle, Safdie urged the audience, “At a time where our cities are both thriving and ailing, proliferating to accommodate the majority of humankind, yet increasingly depriving us from the fundamental qualities of life, not only light, air and nature, but the deprivation of mobility; the erosion and privatization of the public realm; now is the time to declare, once again, that it is the cities we create that really matter.”


    Safdie was recognized for his career-long commitment to innovations in housing, urban design and humanistic architecture. Earlier this year, Moshe Safdie was named the 2015 Gold Medal recipient by the American Institute of Architects. He has been the recipient of numerous awards, honorary degrees, and civil honors, including the Companion of the Order of Canada, the Gold Medal of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, la Medaille du Merite from the Order of Architects of Quebec, Canada, and Israel’s Rechter Prize.
