Biosphère, environment museum - Montréal
An architectural symbol of Montréal since the Expo of 1967, the Biosphère is a unique and spectacular structure in the middle of Parc Jean-Drapeau on Sainte-Hélène Island. The interpretation centre offers exhibitions and scientific animations, all enlivened whit a healthy dose of fun. Through them, visitors gain a better understanding of major environmental issues, climate change, water and air quality, energy, extreme weather and sustainable development. As the centrepiece of an urban oasis, the Biosphère offers an unrestricted view of downtown Montréal and the St. Lawrence River. This unique building uses a number of green technologies, including wind turbines, green roof systems, a geothermal system, wastewater treatment wetlands and living walls.
