When folks come to visit

I wonder who lives in the sample unit from Habitat today, and if they ever think about having several million people walk through their front door. Not many people can say that!

When I toured Habitat, somehow our group (myself, my sister, and two of her female classmates) broke off from the tour and we began walking around the whole unit.  We actually got lost and were knocking on peoples doors (who actually lived there at the time) to find a way out.  We ended up getting in an elevator which almost got stuck.

I think the people who lived there at the time were used to having people show up at their doorstep.  At one point, we were invited inside to see a view of what the outside looked like.

I recently read that Moshe Safdie's duplex apartment in Habitat was renovated in 2018 and is now open to the public for tours.

PS:  Allow me to add:  Holy crap, my typed web address as a link finally, actually works.  Tomorrow I'm going to take photos of all the flying pigs.
