Modular Living, Montreal Style

In the continuing spirit of last week’s Tokyo Noir in which I discussed a little bit about the Nakagin capsules. Fellow blogger and podcaster, and the now trio to me and Mel, Irina had followed me up with, “do you know of Habitat 67?” to which I replied, “of course I do!” but it a non-archisnob kind of way (I hope).

Days after she asked me this, I was perusing one of my favorite design websites, and lo and behold, Habitat 67 had made an appearance, but instead of a Noir-style photoshoot, it was featured in a more intimate setting. So, that being said, this post is dedicated to Irina & Mel. This is for you, my Canadian buddies, who love to appeal to the nerdy “archi-snob” (as Irina had so affectionately named me once) in me.

Tokyo Noir

Good afternoon ladies and gents. I’m sharing some photography for today’s Archi-Anime Anecdote. I’ve also come to realize, this segment may feature more Japanese Architecture news, history, etc. I’m just so in love with everything Japan! Also, for those of you new to the segment, these anecdotes are to give you a peek into my architectural mind. Also, to reveal a little bit more about myself and my own personal design aesthetics. What I find pretty, interesting, and graphically eye-catching out side of the buildings itself.

In August, London’s The House of Illustration, launched an exhibit called Anime Architecture, in which art from famous Anime films is on display. Films like Akira and Ghost in the Shell are featured in this exhibit. Art done by Takashi Watabe, Mamoru Oshii and Atsushi Takeuchi are also featured in the gallery. The exhibit was until September 10, 2017. Damn, this post came a bit late. I had meant to publish this sooner, but you know…life…
