Habitat 67

The Symbol of Wisdom

In 1967, in Canada one of the largest world exhibitions of that time — the EXPO 67 has taken place. Houses and inhabited building were the main theme of an exhibition. The cube is a basis of this structure named Habitat 67, executed to beginning of exhibition. In material sense, a cube — a stability symbol. As to mystical value of a building the cube is a symbol of wisdom, true and moral perfection.
354 cubes set against each other, have allowed to create this gray (on color, instead of as a matter of fact) a building with 146 apartments soaring between heaven and earth, between a city and the rivers, between greens and light.
