Janill Gilbert stashed this in Housing
Maybe the greatest architect of the century. His work looks very utopian. It looks like it comes from the future, maybe because it is the future?

Architectural style Moshe Safdie's works are known for their dramatic curves, arrays of geometric patterns, use of windows, and key placement of open and green spaces. His writings and designs stress the need to create meaningful, vital, and inclusive spaces that enhance community, with special attention to the essence of a particular locale, geography, and culture.
He is a self-described modernist.
"As an architect, I use light and water to try and achieve, what music achieves with rhythm and melody."
