1. The city, home of Habitat, the grand experiment in urban living and one of the most innovative architectural achievements of the 20th century. It was designed by a Canadian-Israeli architect named Moshe Safdie and built for the Montreal Expo – the World’s Fair of 1967. It was meant to provide the benefits of Suburbia (e.g., every unit has a garden), but with urban density and convenience.
2. The Alfa Romeo Montreal, the concept car that was introduced at the Expo in ‘67, became known for the city in which it was first exhibited. It was designed by Marcello Gandini of the House of Bertone in Italy (of course). Fewer than 4,000 copies were produced from 1970-77, but ironically, none were sold in Canada as its engine did not meet Canadian emissions regulations.
The 2 Montreals appear together in this illustration (a 1975 Alfa alongside Habitat), available in a limited edition of just 25, together with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, personally signed by the artist.
