HABITAT 67, or simply Habitat, is a model community and housing complex in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, designed by Israeli-Canadian architect Moshe Safdie. It was originally conceived as his master's thesis in architecture at McGill University and then built as a pavilion for Expo 67, the World's Fair held from April to October 1967. It is located at 2600 Avenue Pierre-Dupuy on the Marc-Drouin Quay next to the Saint Lawrence River. Habitat 67 is widely considered an architectural landmark and one of the most recognizable and spectacular buildings in both Montreal and Canada. In 2017, Canada Post issued a commemorative stamp for the 50th anniversary of Expo 67 featuring the structure.

  • It was a really nice experience for the tour of habitat 67. I’ve been living in Montreal for 10 years. I was an architect back in China. I learned this building from my text book!😜It was fun to see.....  more »
  • Habitat 67 is an interesting building because of it’s weird shape that can be seen easily from the old port in Montreal. Certainly worth looking at and for clicking pics.  more »

  • Cool building to go and look at. Security will kick you out if you go underneath. Pretend you wanna buy a place in the building and he’ll leave you alone.
  • The tour was fantastic, the guides knowledgeable and the views beautiful. A great 'off the beaten path' idea for visitors who don't want to do only touristy things.. and a super tour for locals to know more about our beautiful city.
