Illumination of the Biosphère
From December 11th - Biosphère
To celebrate its 375th anniversary, Montréal Lights Up with the illumination of the Biosphere.

Since December 11th, the Biosphere is illuminated beginning thanks to new lighting design around its structure that emphasizes its striking architectural qualities and complements its existing lighting. This new lighting will feature gradual changes in colour and intensity that will allow for a continuous transformation of the Biosphere’s façade. Much like the passing of time itself, these light sequences will subtly and delicately pass from one to the next.

Montréals 375th anniversary, Canada’s 150th and Expo67’s 50th feels like the perfect moment to give this internationally-renowned architectural monument a new look worthy of its size. The lighting company 4U2C, under the artistic direction of Yves Aucoin, will create the new lighting for this former US pavilion, the most popular at Expo67 with 5.3 million visitors.

In the interest of leaving a lasting legacy for Montrealers at the end of the 375th celebrations, the Île Sainte-Hélène Biosphere will become, for the next 20 years, a new beacon of light in the Montréal sky.

Illuminating Montréal Icons
Starting December 11!

A constellation of Montréal icons shine brightly, illuminating Montréal until the last light of 2016. Mount Royal, the Biosphere, the dome of Saint-Joseph’s Oratory, the mast of the Olympic stadium, as well as several other buildings, structures and monuments in Montréal add sorely-missed light to the shortest days of the year. They act as beacons that guide us towards 2017’s celebrations.

The spectacular and interactive illumination of the Jacques-Cartier Bridge will be inaugurated on May 17th on the anniversary of Montréal’s founding. Creating a legacy for Montrealers, this large-scale illumination will make Montréal shine brightly here as well as abroad for at least 10 years.
