Montreal is an architecture-lovers wet dream. Whether you appreciate Art Deco, neoclassical, modern or anything in between, we’ve got a mishmash of styles and approaches to satiate your construction curiosity. In fact, I’d say we define urban architectural promiscuity. In this photo we have the iconic Montreal Olympic Stadium. “Built for the 1976 Summer Olympic Games, the Olympic Stadium is a bold design by French architect Roger Taillibert. A funicular-type elevator brings visitors to the top three observation floors of the Tower, the tallest inclined tower in the world, which offers a spectacular view of the city. The sports centre, at the foot of the Tower, has six aquatic pools as well as a multi-sport facility.” Thanks to flickr extraordinaire, achille_beaulne, for this magnificent shot.
