Guide – Habitat 67

Season 2022

Following the immense success experienced since 2017 and after a break due to the pandemic, we are pleased to announce the return of the unique guided tour of Habitat 67, the flagship project of Expo 67, in 2022.

The guided tours are open to the public and run from Tuesday to Saturday, from May to October, 2022. Still inhabited today, Habitat 67 has fulfilled its mission: to be an example of a modern, innovative, community-based living space whose architecture and design are distinctive and representative of an era and an approach to urban development. We are looking to complete our team of guides – in French and English – as we enter a new season. Tickets will go on-sale as soon as soon as we have completed our guides team.

The content of the tour covers the history of the site, its architecture and its technical features. It deals especially with the uniqueness of Habitat 67 in the context of Expo 67.
