The Quartier Des Spectacles is the latest building to emerge on the streets of the arts and entertainment district in Montreal, Canada. A glass-encased wonder, it embraces its neighborhood by way of a statement-making design that is bold during the day and even bolder at night. The Quartier Des Spectacles puts on an eye-catching multi-hued light show that will make it one of the biggest attractions on the strip.

In addition to its transparent second skin, the Quartier Des Spectacles also has a stunning recessed triangular entrance. It will be home to several arts and culture organizations as well as the St. Cyr restaurant.

Designed by local architecture firm AEdifica, the Quartier Des Spectacles not only meets the partying standards of residents and tourists, it also fulfills LEED environmental sustainability standards.
