- Paul Goldberger, Michael Sorkin, Peter G. Rowe, Witold Rybczynski, Moshe Safdie: "Moshe Safdie, Vol. 1", 268 pages, Images Publishing Group, 2009.
Moshe Safdie's architecture displays a richly evolving tectonic and spatial sensibility. During forty years of practice, Safdie has designed cultural, educational, and civic institutions, housing, mixed-use complexes and airports, and has developed designs for existing urban districts and entirely new cities. In this two-volume monograph, more than eighty of his projects are illustrated with spectacular photography, original design sketches, and text. Volume One features an essay by Safdie on his architecture and influences, and texts by Paul Goldberg, Peter G. Rowe, Witold Rybczynski and Michael Sorkin. The projects include his seminal Habitat project for the Canadian Expo '67, the National Gallery of Canada, Hebrew Union College and the restoration of the Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem; the Skirball Museum and Cultural Center in Los Angeles; housing in the US and Southeast Asia; and urban designs for Montreal, Senegal, and Singapore.

Volume Two features an essay by Safdie presenting his current thoughts on the significant issues facing architecture today. Accompanying it are texts by William Mitchell on the theme of a global practice responding to a wide range of varied local conditions, and by Thomas Fisher on Safdie's books, which hold as much interest and have been as influential as his buildings. Featured projects include the Salt Lake City Public Library, the Peabody Essex Museum and the US Institute of Peace, the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum, the Rabin Center for Israeli Studies, and the new city of Modi'in in Israel; the Khalsa Heritage Memorial Complex in India; and the Guangdong Science Center and the Guangdong Children's Palace in China.
