"The concrete is stone we produce,
more beautiful and more noble than natural stone."
Auguste Perret (1874-1954)
Habitat 67, masterpiece of the internationally renowned architect, Moshe Safdie, is an exceptional world in itself. You will find yourself admiring the concrete suspended cubes defying the laws of gravity and looking down upon the majestic St-Lawrence River. This unique Complex with its garden terrace has always fascinated the imagination since its creation.
Habitat 67 is praised around the world and is often mentioned in prestigious international magazines such as MONOCLE, a British periodical specialized in global affairs, business, culture and design. In the July/August 2011 issue, one can find an article on Habitat 67, showing the particularities of some of its interesting interiors and emphasizing its unique way of living.
This is the emotion that Habitat 67 residents have and I can testify so, having lived here since 1991. The passion I have for this architectural icon has led me to take on various responsibilities for the benefit of its community: member of the Administration Board and responsible for the Habitat 67 tennis courts.
XXth architectural icon, Habitat 67 was cited heritage building by the City of Montreal in September 2007 and declared heritage building by the Government of Quebec in February 2009 with respect to the exterior of the Complex as well as the interior of the four cubes that belong to Moshe Safdie.
