Moshe Safdie: Architecture designed for dignity

Image 1 of 12


World-renowned architect, Moshe Safdie, designed the United States Institute of Peace headquarters, opening this fall in Washington D.C. The building has an atrium view directed toward the Lincoln Memorial. The roofline, sheathed with curvilinear shapes, billows upward like the fluttering wings of a dove. Safdie has been honored with the moniker 'global citizen' for creating humane spaces around the world.
