That's the one I've been dwelling on most. It seems like something that would be nice to do, with lighting, to shitty old post-war buildings. But as a new construction, no... it's not working. It looks like a compromise with what was already there, not something that was a concept all of its own.

That is PERFECTION to me. It's as good as Halifax's one with the red balconies, or that church one from, I believe, Kitchener. Mixing old and new, outside of the heritage area, of course, can be creative. It doesn't need to be a faux extension.

Reminds me of the style that Tuzla, Bosnia has embraced. It's a mostly Muslim but very passionately, proudly religiously mixed city. It is probably the only city in the entirety of the former Yugoslavia that did not elect a nationalist government, even during the war.

Anyhow, they have an old, Islamic core, and sprawling socialist commieblock suburbia. But they're filling it in with the most interesting mix.

The mosque here is old, and the old marketplace buildings around it are old, but this an ENTIRELY new public square, once the camera turns around. From about 1 minute on, all new.

Can you imagine Canada building something like that from scratch?

Well, you should. Because it makes a beautiful way of life.

Ungh... so tacky, but my tacky. I'm just going to live on the sidewalk outside that one if the arse comes out of our economy and I have to move back to the mainland.

I kinda like Concordia, but not Sherbrooke campuses. Which is weird because Sherbrooke, on paper, is more my style.

Social Housing done right in Montreal, though this project may not be as impressive as the others, it really is - it is world renowned.

Habitat 67 is not exactly what I would call a RECENT project.

Neither are any of the ones Ashok posted. Some of them are from the 50's

^ My bad, I was just representing and got a little carried out.

ps: Not to detrail the thread, but I am not too fond of Habitat 67. I feel it may be a bit overrated.

there has been a lot of renovations inside. And it's recent because it's timeless. lol

Meh, it's not really rated, though. Has anyone given it a serious look beyond, hey, look what they built for the Expo.

It's an interesting building. And it's gotten more than its worth from its prestigious history. No need to worry about it.

Well, Habitat 67 is impressive because but it attempted to introduce a new way of urban living through modular design - but it really did not succeed at shifting market perception of pre-fab design given the stage it had to promote itself. Pre-fab still account for 5-10% of the market today in Canada.

Actually it's very much rated. That's the ONE project from Montreal that you will find in any architecture history book. Seriously.

Oh! I retract my point. I assumed it was just this really cool thing we all knew.
