A Look at Montreal’s Iconic Housing Complex Habitat 67 (10 pics)




An icon of Montreal architecture, Moshe Safdie’s 354-unit housing complex Habitat 67 has been documented ever since its conception it was presented in the World Exposition of 1967. Photographer James Brittain captured the Brutalist structure in a series of stunning large-scale images that focus on its inhabitants, details and interiors, showing how it has weathered and age throughout the years. Conceived as an experimental blueprint for a more humane way of dense urban living, it places a strong emphasis on people and community.

Revisited: Habitat 67 will be part of Building on the Built’s program of exhibitions and lecture series at Jonathan Tuckey Design this February. See the schedule here , and follow Brittain’s work on his website and Instagram .
