Saturday Snaps #14 – Habitat 67

Habitat 67 Montreal

Location: Habitat 67 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Author: LaurenJustin Plus Lauren

Description: Prior to visiting Montreal in the summer of 2013, we had only seen photographs of Habitat 67, a futuristic-looking model housing complex that was originally built as a pavilion for Expo 67. We discovered how interesting this architectural landmark truly was when we saw Habitat for ourselves.

Situated beside a nearby park and along a waterfront bicycle path, Habitat 67 has become known as both a modern architectural marvel, and conversely, one of the ugliest living communities in the world.

What do you think? We think that it is incredibly unique and stunning!

I've been there. It definitely doesn't look like any other housing development. I think it's incredibly ugly. :)

Oh really? I think they look super cool and modern! I actually wouldn't mind living in one. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder ;) Regardless of beauty, it's pretty iconic!

It looks a lot like the apartments in the Barbican in London :-)
