Moshe Safdie's habitat 67 was a grand social housing project for Montreal Expo 67. Containing a 158 seemingly randomly arranged apartment blocks build on a man- made island in downtown Montreal. Originally deeply unpopular, its now a sought after address.

The sheer crazyness of the structure is strangly appealing, although from a distance looks like a brazilian favela (slum).
