The Stade de Soccer de Montreal is a sport stadium located in Quebec that opts for a geometric aesthetic that mimics the shape of a crystal. The outside roof facade is made entirely out of glass by the design team at HCMA and Saucier + Perrotte.

The inspiration behind the Stade de Soccer de Montreal crystalline roof shape is derived from the mining culture that was founded in the region that is embodied in the geological and modular shape of the overall space. The stadium features a modern design that mixes a variety of materials such as glass and cross-laminated timber to create an enclosed stadium for soccer players to enjoy year round. The modular shape of the roof leaves the inside ceiling with a similar abstract collection of triangular patterns that adds an element of contemporary design to the stadium.
