The Habitat 67

Habitat 67 is a famous housing complex in Montreal, Canada. Designed by architect Moshe Safdie and built in 1967 as part of the Universal Expo, the project is still hailed for its futuristic design even after 40 over years.

The cube is the base and the finality of Habitat 67. In its material sense, the cube is a symbol of stability. 354 cubes of a magnificent grey-beige build up one on the other to form 146 residences.

A gigantic yet futuristic architecture indeed.


  1. I dare not to be in any of those buildings. :)

  2. Since it didn't collapse until now, it should be safe...
