Decided to walk to the Biosphere and the route took us right past Habitat 67. It must be one of the weirdest buildings we have ever seen and having just been raining it didn’t look all that inviting. We did not take the tour, maybe...More

This building, made of many cubes of each 750 sq.ft., was the creation of the famous architect Moshe Sadfie who studied architecture at McGill University. This project was his doctorate thesis, about half a century ago, and has kept its very unique appeal for tourists...More

A nice place to see while biking toward Ile-Ste-Helene & Parc-Jean Drapeau. You'll have a nice bike bath in front of it while facing the old port of Montreal

One of the highlights of my recent Canada trip! Lovely tour with a knowledgeable guide. Got the chance to see Moshe Safdie’s penthouse as part of the experience, which was fascinating. I would recommend the tour to anyone with an interest in architecture!

I knew nothing about Habitat 67 until I saw it from the waterfront in Old Montreal. I had to get a closer look and I'm really glad I did. It isn't easy to get to. My wife and I walked and, although it isn't difficult...More

Habitat 67 is amazing, both from an architectural and an engineering perspective. Moshe Safdie was only 25 years old when he designed this project for Expo 67, something extraordinary in itself. It is made up of 324 six hundred square foot concrete cubicles that provide...More
