Read comments from two of our judges, Firas Hnoosh and Alan Crawford, below:

“Very interesting and very strong designs! It was hard to pick! It’s very exciting to see the LEAF Awards bringing together such talented firms, large and small, from all-over the globe!”
Firas Hnoosh - March ARB RIBA LEED AP, Design Director, BDP

“It’s been a little trickier this year with more entries in each category, however, as usual some entries really stand out as special (for me) against the backdrop of others that are not quite as special, and these that do shine out are not always as a result of their vast scale, or what must often be huge development costs (which I only wish had been given to the designers of the more special projects that I have selected), that show flair and imagination on what are probably more reduced budgets."
Alan Crawford - Managing Director, Crawford Partnership

Lifetime Achievement of the Year - LEAF AWARDS 2015 - MOSHE SAFDIE

Moshe+SafdieMoshe Safdie, the noted architect, urban planner, educator, theorist, and author, has been announced as the recipient of the 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award from the LEAF Awards. The award recognizes Safdie’s enduring contribution to the built environment.

Safdie, who recently received the 2015 AIA Gold Medal from the American Institute of Architects, is a global architect with a lasting and far-reaching impact. Born in Haifa, Israel, in 1938, Safdie graduated from McGill University in 1961 with a degree in architecture. After apprenticing with Louis I. Kahn, Safdie returned to Montreal to oversee the master plan for the 1967 World Exposition. In 1964 he established his own firm to realize Habitat ‘67, an adaptation of his undergraduate thesis, which was the central feature of the Exposition and a groundbreaking design in the history of architecture.

Over the past 50 years, Safdie has realized a wide range of projects all over the world, including Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum, Jerusalem; National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; United States Institute of Peace Headquarters, Washington, D.C.; Khalsa Heritage Memorial Complex, the national museum of the Sikh people in India; Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas; and Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort, Singapore.

Hailed for his comprehensive and humane design philosophy, Safdie’s work is responsive to local historic, cultural, and environmental contexts and grows out of his vision of the transformative power of the public realm. The award will be conferred upon Moshe Safdie at a gala celebration Leaf Awards, in London on October 16, 2015.
