Montreal World Trade Center also known as Centre de Commerce mondial de Montréal), is a mix of both offices and a hotel located in the Old Port of Montreal, an area called the international quarter.
The place itself is beautiful, and I always tend to bring my friends who are visiting for a walk and a look around.
What makes this place special?
History, the place was built in the early 90s, yet the items on display inside go way back.
There is a piece of the Berlin wall on display, which I find a beautiful reminder, especially for our younger generation.
There is also a fountain by French architect and sculptor Dieudonné-Barthélemy Guibal.
2. The architecture of the building
The whole area looks like two buildings have been put together, in the most intelligent and artistic way possible.
The ceiling is a transparent glass ceiling.
There is a mesh of stairways along the way that adds this modern effect, while keeping it simple.
3. The open space
In the open space through the building, there is a reflecting pool, coffee shops, boutiques and other services.
Here is how it looks:
