Habitat Interiors

Last summer, our Text'art group visited Habitat 67, the iconic harbourfront building designed by Moshe Safdie. Tours were made available as part of Montreal's 375th anniversary, and we took advantage of this rare opportunity to explore the residential complex. You can read about our experience here.

Colleen Paul, one of our Text'art members, has kindly sent me a link to an item about a current show of photographs by Montreal-based James Brittain that expose the "interior life" of Habitat. His large-scale colour photos are currently on view as part of Toronto's CONTACT Photography Festival,  continuing until July 31, 2018.

Brittain has photographed nine units to date. His images show how residents have created livable spaces in this experimental housing complex.
