Habitat 67 was designed in the same Metabolist style, popular in Japan in the 1960s. However, this one is in Montreal in Canada. The designer was Moshe Safdie and he did the design as part of his graduate thesis at McGill University. The building was created as a temporary housing for people working at the Expo 67 of the 1967 World Fair. The design is supposed to represent organic growth and there are three apartment towers standing at the waterfront in Montreal.
