The former commercial capital of Canada, Montreal yet remains an important center of Canada, let’s take a look at some architects in Montreal and what they did. Pavilions designed for the 1967 International and Universal Exposition created history with the geodesic dome by Buckminster Fuller and Habitat 67 by Moshe Safdie – both contributing significantly to the landmarks of the city. Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe’s Westmount Square, Roger Taillibert’s controversial Olympic Stadium and Mount Royal Park by Fredrick Law Olmstead are some of the prominent works in the city by these architectural luminaries.

With a variety of factories, warehouses, mills, and refineries bearing testimony to the once industrial and financial center of Canada, the old city provides an invaluable insight into its history through these still-standing buildings that date back to the late 17th and early 18th centuries. Its legacy as a French colony in grey stone can still be seen in the cobbled streets of Old Montreal. The industrialization in the early 20th Century of the province led to an architectural style that would forever define Montréal’s architectural identity: the duplexes and triplexes, covered in either limestone or brick, with circular exterior staircases contributed by the architects in Montreal.

The current urban fabric of Montreal is characterized by the juxtaposition of the old and the new and a wide variety of influences from the French and the British, and modern architecture from its south. Being recognized by the international design community as a UNESCO City of Design in 2006, Montreal and the famous architects in Montreal continue to work hard, aim high and innovate to live up to its reputation.
