Buildings
Downtown - Quartier des spectacles

The Grande Bibliothèque is a cultural meeting place, which houses an auditorium, exhibition hall, coffee shop, and outdoor facilities. Its design was selected following an international architectural competition. The building is covered with over 6,000 plates of frosted and tempered glass and a ceramic coating used for the first time in North America. Inside, two large spaces known as the wooden rooms are distinguished by wood-paneled walls that can direct or block light as required for conserving documents. Walls are made of yellow birch, the emblematic tree of Québec.
