An icon of Montreal architecture, Moshe Safdie’s 354-unit housing complex Habitat 67 has been documented ever since its conception it was presented in the World Exposition of 1967. Photographer James Brittain captured the Brutalist structure in a series of stunning large-scale images that focus on its inhabitants, details and interiors, showing how it has weathered and age throughout the years. Conceived as an experimental blueprint for a more humane way of dense urban living, it places a strong emphasis on people and community.
Revisited: Habitat 67 will be part of Building on the Built’s program of exhibitions and lecture series at Jonathan Tuckey Design this February. See the schedule here, and follow Brittain’s work on his website and Instagram.
