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.
