disappear from the urban landscape Most Canadians already are not able to afford and multiple-dwelling structures now are the rule on the eastern seaboard of the U S he said at a news conference Mr Safdie most of whose work now is being done in the U S and Israel was in Ottawa for the opening of a display of his architectural designs and models at the National Gallery and to launch a book For Everyone a Garden outlining his concepts He believes multiple- dwelling structures can be designed to give each family access to the outdoors and most of the amenities of a suburban house lot with handy retail and other mu nicipal services Some of his designs for low-cost housing and recreation centres have been rejected because they are too innovative built on the Montreal river-front was an example of what could be done Similar structures have been built in Puerto Rico Israel and the U S He now is working on one Canadian for 140 housing units to be built in N WT Although he says ideas about single-family dwellings will have to be discarded in view of the pressure on space he abhors high-rise apartments He supported Prime Minister Trudeau s proposals for financing demonstration projects for model and for revitalizing urban and interurban transportation systems His published by The Massachusetts Institute of Technology Press at Mass is a compilation of his experiments and design con- cepts primarily intended for students and but written as well for the layman The display of Mr Safdie's plans and organized bv the Baltimore Museum of Art has been on a national tour of the U S and its only appearance in Canada will be at the National Gallery here It will remain on display until Sept 2 WE'VE MOVED QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dentil Mechanic 303-Sth
