What is the ideal form of a contemporary house?

Moshe Safdie wrote the original proposal in 1964 when he designed Habitat'67, which became famous. Over the past 50 years, with the concept of continuous iteration, Safdie has "experimented" with several Habitat projects around the world, including the only Haibitai house in Qinhuangdao, China. Combined with the characteristics of the site itself, a new residential form that allows people to live in nature even in the city is constructed.

Of course, it is obviously not enough to make the human body close to nature. Safdie's Habitat also pursues a spiritual ideal: how can architecture give people value beyond space? How to build a new kind of community? How to inspire a new way of life Moshe Safdie: Habitat In Nature, Safdie and Habitat owners share their ideals for new habitats.
