Love it or hate it? We check out the craziest housing complex in Canada

Looking for interesting things to do on your next trip to Montreal, Canada? You’ll probably want to check out Habitat 67, the city’s weirdest, craziest, most iconic housing complex.

Designed by 29-year-old architect Moshe Safdie as part of his master’s thesis, this incredible complex was built in 1967 for Expo ’67 with the help of the federal government, but is now privately owned by and rented out to the luckiest tenants in the world.

The structure consists of 354 concrete forms that are stacked up to 12 storeys high, housing around 400 people in 147 units. It’s like living in your own Lego set!

While the complex was designated a heritage site by the Quebec government back in 2009, it hasn’t always been to everybody’s taste. Some have called it ‘repulsive‘.

What do you think? Worth a visit? Interested in living there?
