An Up-Close Look at History

History comes alive at World Trade Centre Montréal!

  • 17 separate buildings
  • A full city block
  • Built between 1840 and 1960

The Centre Is Born

A study was conducted to assess the historical, cultural and structural value of these buildings. Based on the findings, 11 unique façades were integrated into the complex, with the entrances designed to preserve their original style.

This major renovation, restoration and construction project was carried out between 1988 and 1991 by a consortium of three architectural firms: Arcop, Provencher Roy and Becker, Gersovitz, Moss.

They succeeded in harmonizing and integrating the existing architectural and historical traits of the property to create a contemporary complex in a prestigious environment.

ruelle des Fortifications

The ruelle des Fortifications gets its name from Old Montreal’s 18th-century walled fortifications. At one time, it was home to a military centre and farmers who came to sell their products to the local townspeople. Its walls were dismantled between 1804 and 1812.

Today, the Ruelle des Fortifications is home to a selection of shops and restaurants.

 

Berlin Wall Remnant

 

Did you know that a remnant of the Berlin Wall is on permanent display in the Ruelle des Fortifications?

Part of Montreal’s public art collection, this artefact was donated to the city in honour of its 350th anniversary.

The remnant symbolizes Berlin’s return to the community of free cities after the fall of the wall on November 9, 1989.

 

 

Amphitrite Foundation and Black Granite Reflecting Pool

Owned by Power Corporation of Canada, this 18th-century fountain features a statue of Amphitrite, wife of Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea. The statue is the work of French sculptor Dieudonné-Barthélémy Guibal (1699–1757). It originally stood atop a fountain in the village of Saint-Mihiel, in Meuse, France.

Acquired by the late Paul Desmarais, former chair of Power Corporation of Canada, the fountain is located under a magnificent glass roof, which is reflected in the 200-square-metre black granite pool, where a thin layer of running water creates a glass-like effect.

 

Circulations Mural

Inaugurated in 2012 to mark World Trade Centre Montréal’s 20th anniversary, Circulations is the work of artist Rafael Sottolichio in collaboration with Olivier Roy.

Located at the entrance to Montréal’s Underground City passageway, the mural dramatizes the Centre’s distinctive architecture and lighting, becoming a public theatre where ideas and dreams intermingle.
