Montreal’s

Montreal’s

A year from tomorrow marks a momentous day for Montreal . The city will celebrate its 375th anniversary of its founding on April 27, 2017, as well as the 50th anniversary of the Expo 67 World Fair. In honor of these two great events, New York-based architecture firm Dror unveiled a new vision for Montreal’s Saint Helen’s Island that features a gorgeous and green geodesic dome sited opposite of Buckminster Fuller’s iconic Biosphere. Wrapped in a vegetated sound buffer, the spacious dome would offer a public year-round gathering space that could accommodate festivals, concerts, food markets, and more.
