    The renowned architect, Moshe Safdie designed a very different style of apartment buildings for the Expo site. It was called "Habitat" and is probably unlike anything you've ever seen before, unless you're familiar with ancient Taos Indian dwellings in the SW USA

    Olympic Stadium. We can visit it. And there is also a zoo nearby which can be interesting if you are travelling with kids.
    There is a shopping mall by this stadium if you need to take a break or simply do some shopping !!!

    The Olympic Stadium (Stade Olympique). This place seems to be listed in every Montréal tourist guide but is way the hell over in the Hochelaga-Maissoneuve neighbourhood so not many people tend to visit it. In fact, there were only about 12 tourists around it when I was there- the rest seemed to be locals using the Olympic facilities or just passing through. The stadium is quite the interesting architectural achievement viewed from far away, but up close it seems to be cracking at the seams, leaking and ready to crumble- almost like buildings built during the Soviet era in Eastern Europe. In any event, the stadium features a tower on which you can ride a glass incline to the top for a panoramic view of Montréal- my fear of height sorta kept me away from that. Nearby is the Biodome, where another Olympic stadium was converted into a sort of climate controlled, indoor zoo. The Olympic Stadium is also home of the Montréal Expos baseball team, so if you want to catch a game you can head over there. It's accessible from both the Pie-IX and Viau Métro stations.

    It is a gorgeous place. Even if it is not payed for yet after 30 years. The Architecture is incredible. What an imagination.
