Fondation Habitat 67 will collaborate with McGill on the maintenance of the apartment itself and help promote its use for public educational activities. The archive is one of the most extensive collections of architectural documentation in Canada, explains McGill, and provides the opportunity to investigate Safdie’s building projects and the ideas behind them. “This is a historic moment for McGill. One of the most influential and important architectural archives in the world, from one of our most celebrated graduates, will forever be a part of our University,” said McGill Principal Suzanne Fortier.
