Safdie Architects is an architecture and urban design studio imbued with a spirit of idealism and innovation. The practice is research-oriented and forward thinking, drawing upon a depth of experience to solve contemporary building challenges in imaginative and unexpected ways.

With intense personal involvement of Moshe Safdie and a core group of Principals, the practice operates in the model of an intimate design studio—yet with the resources, design intelligence, and agility to deliver some of the world’s largest and most complex commissions.

Active in a wide variety of project types, scales and sectors, their experience includes designing museums, cultural centers, libraries, housing, mixed-use developments, transportation centers and master plans in geographically and culturally-diverse places. The practice has its design headquarters in Boston with satellite offices in Jerusalem, Toronto, Shanghai and Singapore.
