About Safdie Architects

Safdie Architects is a design studio driven by a spirit of innovation and idealism, founded upon the guiding principles that architecture should be inherently timeless, connected to nature, and profoundly humane. Their design philosophy is rooted in Moshe Safdie’s powerful metaphor: “For Everyone a Garden”, the beautifully simple notion that sees architecture as a generous act of connecting us to nature and creating meaningful spaces of community that serve as catalysts for vibrant public life.

Job Description:
