Habitat '67 by Moshe Safdie Architects

When I saw this project the first thing I thought was: How do they manage to build something so disconnected and without modulation? How people can live there? Somewhat strange, I present you guys the Habitat'67, by Moshe Safdie Architects.

Located in Montreal, Canada, this building was created for the 1967 World Exposition that happened in Montreal. It was developed with three-dimensional prefabricated modules in order to house a total of 158 residences. The units are connected by high tension bars and welds, all combined to create a continuous suspension system.

Three elevator cores direct vertical circulation throughout the complex, with elevators stopping at every fourth floor to serve pedestrian streets. Every part of the building, including the units, the pedestrian streets, and the elevator cores, participate as load-bearing members.
