Montréal is known for its eclectic and stunning architecture. Here are 5 musts for photographers seeking extraordinary photo opportunities.

1. Habitat 67

Habitat 67, an architectural gem unique in the world, is one of the best subjects for photographers who love minimalistic and angular lines. Fans of brutalist architecture will have a ball here.


2. Campus MIL – Université de Montréal

Built on the site of the former Outremont marshalling yard, this university campus is worth your while. With mirror reflections, a footbridge and a mist fountain, you’re sure to get some fabulous shots.


3. Montréal Soccer Stadium

Located in the Villeray-Saint-Michel-Parc-Extension borough, the Montréal Soccer Stadium is a symbol of local innovation and creativity. The structure’s reflections and the integration of the building and field will make it worth your while.


4. Parc Frédéric-Back

Close to the Montréal Soccer Stadium, the Frédéric-Back park’s unique spheres, built to cover up biogas collection wells, give it a sci-fi film feel. Wait until nightfall to see them turn phosphorescent.


5. The Olympic Stadium and Olympic Park

Spend the day to study the spaceship-looking Olympic Stadium, the metallic structures of the Planetarium or the Olympic Park’s cool outdoor installations. An otherworldly experience!
