I have attempted several times to drive through the borders of Canada to view Habitat 67 by Moshe Safdie. I entertain myself by asking people who did not study architecture to guess the age of buildings such as these. My go-to would always be Habitat 67 and The Breuer Building as mentioned in my previous post. It's always fascinating to hear them guess that they were built during the 21st century. With designs ahead of their time such as that of Moshe Safdie's, there is a conjecture of timeless contemporary qualities through their complex age obscurity.
In Global Citizen: The Architecture of Moshe Safdie Exhibit, you'll see stunning and articulate physical models of his conceptual, current and upcoming international works. It is located at the National Academy at from now until January 10, 2016. It was curated by Donald Abrecht who is a curator of art, architecture and design based in New York.
