加拿大,魁北克省,Habitat 67:蒙特利尔的预制城市/Moshe Safdie

1967年,魁北克省蒙特利尔市举办了1967年世博会——20世纪规模最大也是最成功的世界博览会之一。由于住宅是此届世博会的主题之一,因此建筑师Moshe Safdie接受委托建造一座大规模的住宅综合楼,首先是供来访的政要使用,其次是供蒙特利尔市的居民居住。Safdie设计的Habitat 67是当时一个真正的建筑杰作,不但提供了一个可相互交流的公寓社区,还能保证租户的私密性与独立性。这个城市中的城市是1967年世博会的一大亮点,已成为蒙特利尔市最抢眼的地标之一。


In 1967, Montreal, Quebec held Expo 67, one of the largest and most successful World’s Fair gatherings of the 20th Century. As housing was one of the main themes of Expo 67, architect Moshe Safdie was commissioned to build a grand-scale residential complex that would first house visiting dignitaries– then the citizens of Montreal itself. Safdie’s Habitat 67 was a true architectural masterwork in its time, providing an interconnected community of apartments that still provided their tenants with privacy and seclusion. This city within a city was a highlight of Expo 67, and has become one of Montreal’s most recognizable landmarks. Take a closer look at Habitat 67 in the gallery below.
