With Intention to Build: The Unrealized Concepts, Ideas, and Dreams of Moshe Safdie

“When you look at the body of the unbuilt work, with few exceptions it is some of the most significant work we’ve done. Some of it is radical and adventurous, pushing out of the frame or box.” - Moshe Safdie

Focusing on the most seminal of Moshe Safdie’s unbuilt projects, this exhibit curated by Safdie Architects, which opens to the public on October 11, takes viewers through the evolution of concepts and ideas developed over a 55-year practice. With Intention to Build showcases materials used in the creative process, including models, drawings, and sketches, alongside various texts, photographs, and other artifacts that provide context and tell the stories behind these radical unrealized designs. Throughout, the exhibition demonstrates how integral these ideas have been to Safdie Architects’ evolving practice.

With Intention to Build is on view October 11, 2022 through January 2, 2023.

A formal reception and gallery talk with Moshe Safdie will be held Thursday, October 27 from 5:30 - 7:00 pm.
