Sport and design have a rich history of intermingling with one another, and the Saint-Laurent Sports Complex in Montreal is a building that hopes to reestablish some of those ties for the local community. The building is angular and striking in appearance, making it a distinct and unique structure when compared against the other sports buildings in the area.

Sports feed design in many ways. Teams are represented by intricate and characteristic logos, sports equipment requires careful industrial design and engineering, and sports stadiums and arenas are often architecturally impressive. Though the Marcel Laurin Park neighborhood already has an arena nearby, that building is relatively neutral in appearance, so Saucier + Perrotte, the architects behind the project, opted for something with more personality.
