Photographer's Note

Expo's Habitat '67 is among the strangest housing developments Montreal has ever seen. They are a Moshe Safdie's creation — a four-block-long row of 158 prefabricated rectangular houses stacked seemingly randomly in a pyramid. It has 365 construction modules connect to create the 158 residences ranging in size from 600-square-foot one-bedroom dwellings to 1,800-square-foot four-bedroom dwellings, exhibiting fifteen housing types in all. Stepped back in their modular placement, each residence has its own roof garden— is both highly praised and harshly criticized by Montrealers.

Even at almost 40 year's old, they still look modern in my eyes.
