A striking addition to the cityscape, the architectural design of the Montréal Convention Centre (Palais des congrès) exudes the warmth, creativity and elegance for which Montréal is renowned the world over.
This dominant convention destination offers versatile and ultramodern facilities in a bold and complex design that typifies Montréal and its openness to the world. The building is a study of transparency and light: with an impressive western façade featuring over 300 panels of coloured glass, the effect is dynamic and luminous, inside and out.
A pillar of the International Quarter, the Centre is strategically located as a hub connecting Old Montréal, the business district and Chinatown, in close proximity to the city’s leading sights and attractions.
The Centre showcases compelling landscaping and daring artwork by some of Québec’s best. The 52 concrete pink trees of Claude Cormier’s Lipstick Forest provide a colourfully original addition to the interior, while the bronze fountain-sculpture and ring of fire, entitled La Joute by famed artist Jean-Paul Riopelle, anchors the adjacent urban park.
Given how this building combines functionality with beauty, it’s no wonder that the world is talking about the Montréal Convention Centre, which appears in prestigious travel magazines and was even included in the “1001 Buildings You Must See Before You Die: The World's Architectural Masterpieces” guide.
