A Renewed Look at Life Inside Habitat 67, Fifty-One Years Later


Fifty-one years later, Montreal-based photographer James Brittain revisits Habitat 67 to explore the theme of architectural memory. Designed by Canadian architect Moshe Safdie for the World Exposition of 1967, the iconic residential complex is home to a diverse range of people. Brittain takes his camera inside the complex, showing how the concrete has aged, and how it has been used and adapted by residents. The show answers the question, what’s it like to live in a Brutalist masterpiece?

Revisited: Habitat 67 runs until Jul 31 at bulthaup, 280 King St E. Originally published in Five Fascinating Contact Photography Shows You Can’t Miss
