Hats off to the BBC.
Habitat 67 | Moshe Safdie
Conceived as his master’s thesis in architecture at McGill University and then built as a pavilion for Expo 67. When he was awarded the project, Safdie, in his twenties, had never built a building. It is regarded as both a success and failure - it redefined urban living and has since become a very successful co-op but at the same time ultimately failed to revolutionise affordable housing or launch a wave of prefabricated, modular development as Safdie had envisioned. Despite this, it was the launching pad for his highly successful career.
