Habitat is the first in the Blockitecture® series, designed by James Paulius (born in Chicago) for Metaproject, an industry projects class produced by the Rochester Institute of Technology in partnership with Areaware. The forms were inspired by Habitat 67, a housing complex and pavilion designed by Moshe Safdie for the 1967 World's Fair in Montreal, Canada. Recommended for Ages 6 and up.

James Paulus on his designs, "Much of my work deals with designing toy blocks inspired by architecture, landscape design, and urban planning. I aim for my toys to allow children to engage in their imagination through play while exercising their understanding of geometry and physics to build structures and cities. I hope to introduce children to the idea that we each have the potential to determine the design of our environments to create a better world for everyone."
