Expo 67 

Expo 67, held in Montreal, Canada, was not just a world's fair but a celebration of innovation, culture, and modern architecture. The event was special because it introduced the concept of "Man and His World," with various pavilions showcasing advancements and cultural elements from across the globe. Its futuristic architecture, like the Habitat 67 housing complex, has become a landmark and a symbol of the city's forward-thinking approach to urban living.

Did you know? 

An interesting tidbit about Expo 67 is the story of Habitat 67 itself. Designed by architect Moshe Safdie for his master's thesis at McGill University, it was intended as an experimental solution for high-quality urban housing. These iconic stacked modules have since become a celebrated example of Brutalist architecture and a visual representation of the 60s idealism and innovative spirit.

It is considered the most successful of all World’s Fairs of the 20th century, and it had 62 nations that took part and millions of visitors. Just on the third day, there were 569,500 visitors which is the world record for a single day at a World’s Fair.

 After the event ended, the building and some of the pavilions continued as an exhibition named “Man and His World”, from 1967 to 1984. Today, the island where Expo 67 took place is used as parkland, for recreational use and for tourists that want to see the place where the huge event took place.
