Here are two good New Year’s Resolutions for us all: (1) travel more; and (2) organize the thousands of photos we all store on too many devices, hard drives, and clouds. If you’ve managed to do a bit of (1) and need help achieving (2), then share your #SafdieSnapshots!
Since opening the retrospective Global Citizen: The Architecture of Moshe Safdie, many gallery visitors have raved about their personal experiences of an actual Safdie building. What about you? Been moved at Yad Vashem Holocaust History Museum? Gone to Habitat ‘67 or Crystal Bridges or the Peabody Essex? Or (lucky you!) have you swum in the infinity pool way up high atop Marina Bay Sands?
Well, here’s hoping you took a camera with you. We invite you to contribute your fave pix to our #SafdieSnapshots photo album. E-mail your contributions to firstname.lastname@example.org—or share them via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram using the hashtag #SafdieSnapshots.
In your message, identify the building in the photo (here’s a complete list of Safdie projects) and a short caption of what you observed/felt/pondered/marveled at/got dazzled by while visiting. The pix need not show you, but we would especially love to see you and your loved ones enlivening the architecture. And yes, photos of our Safdie-designed Skirball campus count.
Compiled together, the album will create a candid portrait of Safdie’s architecture around the world. We hope you’ll be a part of it.
And be sure to check out the full album on Facebook!
