Futuristic eco-responsible neighbourhoods

What design principles make a neighbourhood a great place to live? Find inspiration in outstanding Canadian and international projects. Each one responds to current social and environmental issues. Each one makes happiness and quality of life top priorities.

What will our ideal neighbourhoods look like?

Sustainable? That improve our quality of life? While experts agree we must follow principles, there is no template for designing the ideal neighbourhood. On the contrary, predicting the agglomerations of the future will depend on finding inspiration in a wide variety of models.

In this highly colourful exhibition, eight areas present an essential component of the neighbourhood of the future, and each has its own colour. You’ll see that the neighbourhood of 2067 will be multicoloured!

Habitats 2067 is a nod to the 1967 Universal Exhibition, of which the Biosphère is an essential symbol. Moshe Safdie’s Habitat 67 housing complex, built for the occasion, and the Biosphère, the former United States pavilion, both transformed Montréal’s built landscape. They opened the eyes of the world to possible habitats of the future.
