New Partnership in the Asia Pacific
Moshe Safdie is teaming up with Singapore infrastructure consultancy firm Surbana Jurong to design buildings in the Asia Pacific.
“He is the man behind one of Singapore’s most recognizable buildings – the Marina Bay Sands – and now, Moshe Safdie and his architectural firm will work with Singapore infrastructural consultancy firm Surbana Jurong to design and construct buildings in the Asia Pacific.
Safdie Architects and Surbana Jurong inked an agreement on Thursday (May 25) to form Safdie Surbana Jurong (SSJ), which they described as a “long-term collaboration to jointly pursue major design projects”.
The focus will be on residential, commercial and institutional projects “to create world-class iconic architecture projects in Asia Pacific”, said both parties in a joint news release.
For all projects undertaken by SSJ, Mr. Safdie will personally provide design leadership and be closely involved throughout the construction of each project, said the joint release.”
