Moshe Safdie - Habitat ‘67: The Shape Of Things To Come

Exhibition, UQAM, Centre de Design, Montréal, Canada.


Until August 13, 2017
A Canadian National Heritage Site and living landmark, Habitat ‘67 evolved from architect Moshe Safdie’s thesis project at McGill University, commissioned by the Canadian government as a major, living exhibition for the 1967 World Expo. From the beginning, it captured the international public imagination and has become an enduring icon of the exposition as well as of Canadian pride, remaining to this day a source of in iration for architecture devoted to humanistic ideals. This exhibition traces the trajectory of Safdie’s work from its origins to the present, demonstrating how he has consistently applied the same design principles and ideologies he introduced then.
