The Habitat 67 housing complex won an internet vote, beating out iconic structures like Paris’ Eiffel Tower, Rome’s Coliseum and the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington D.C.
The Lego company had, without making any promises, said it would consider creating a toy set inspired by the winning entry.
Designed by Israeli-Canadian architect Moshe Safdie, Habitat 67 is a unique project built for the city’s world fair in 1967.
It’s an integrated series of blocks of housing units near downtown Montreal’s waterfront. It was declared a historic site by Quebec in 2009.
The company says it can’t commit to building something just because it won a contest.
