Habitat 67 (Housing)

Habitat 67 is a housing complex, designed and created by architect Moshe Safdie located in Quebec, Canada, based on his master's thesis and built as part of Expo 67

Safdie’s thesis project explored new solutions to urban design challenges and high-density living and so the modular interlocking square shape blocks were designed to integrate the variety and diversity of scattered private homes with linking pedestrian streets and suspended terraces and aerial spaces.

The building was believed to convey the new style of city people would be living in as cities become increasingly crowded
