About the Program
For more than five decades, legendary architect Moshe Safdie has built some of the world's most influential and memorable structures—including our very own Skirball Cultural Center.
In a conversation with author and KCRW design and architecture contributor Frances Anderton, hear Safdie discuss his new book, If Walls Could Speak, which takes readers behind the veil of an essential yet mysterious profession to explain how an architect thinks and works—from the spark of imagination through the design process, the model-making, the politics, the engineering, and the materials.
Relating memorable stories about what has inspired him, Safdie shares with us the complexities that underpin every project and his vision for the role architecture can and should play in society at large.
Books provided by Audrey’s Museum Store. A signing follows the talk.
