born in Haifa, Palestine[edit]

Should be Haifa, Israel. Is this Vandalism? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.153.53.150 (talk) 16:31, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

No, it isn't. What vandalism is and isn't at Wikipedia is specified at WP:VANDAL. The basic line here is Don't rewrite history. Safdie was born in 1938, ten years prior to the foundation of the State of Israel. --Soman (talk) 17:53, 24 October 2008 (UTC)


Before 1948, Israel was not established ... I would say British Mandate for Palestine —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.122.82.185 (talk) 05:49, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Excellent student?[edit]

Under the heading 'Career' the first statement, an excellent student...isnt that more opinion then fact, if so, is there something to back up he is a excellent student? like doing Uni level maths at the age of three? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.75.131.104 (talk) 22:00, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

Deleted text[edit]

I've deleted text added by User:Sarahmperz several times, for the following reasons:

  • the tone is not encyclopedic
  • it is a direct copy of text found on other websites
  • it is contributed by someone with a WP:COI|conflict of interest]] in this article
  • it is of no importance to the article

Text added to articles may not be copied from other websites, even those you create, unless that text is licenced in a form acceptable for distribution by Wikipedia, and copyable by other entities. Further, the tone must be encyclopedic, not an essay or marketing spiel (eg - "We conceive of architecture as a natural extension of its surroundings" and "A central goal of our work is to create unique spaces and forms"). In fact, the entirety of the text deleted has little substance about the subject of this article. Mindmatrix 00:45, 14 November 2009 (UTC)

is Michal Ronnen a man or a woman?[edit]

The article states Mr. Safdie is married to a "Michal Ronnen" with whom he has 2 kids. "Michal" is a male name. So, Mr. Safdie must be bi-sexual now, because before that, he was married to a woman (wife). And can he "have" kids with a man? He could have adopted them. Homosexuals often do under the new law. But then plase state so. Or is that mysterious "Michal" person a woman after all? But in what language is "Michal" female? I know Mr. Safdie from TV interviews, and I don't think he is bisexual. He acts very heterosexual. Please explain! 93.219.155.159 (talk) 08:30, 21 September 2013 (UTC)
