Olympic Stadium

Roger Taillibert's magnificent Olympic Stadium, or "The Big O," as it is affectionately called, remains one of Montreal's most stunning architectural achievements. The visionary design is a triumphant embodiment of Organic Modern Architecture, inspired by natural plant and animal forms. The covered stadium was designed to withstand the city's notoriously harsh winters, with a retractable roof that is supported by the world's tallest inclined tower. Originally intended for the Summer Olympics of 1976, the ambitious design did not reach fruition until 1987, and the roof's ability to retract remained unrealized for another year. Today, the stadium is Quebec's largest in terms of seating capacity and hosts special events such as concerts, trade fairs and sporting events. A funicular transports visitors to the top of the inclined tower, at a height of 175 meters (574 feet), where a spellbinding view over the Olympic Park and the city beyond awaits.
