Straightaway, you are struck by the splendour of the original building of the Biodôme. You slow down your pace, your eyes drawn to the vault bathed in light of the former Vélodrome, then you notice the sobriety of the space, which underscores the beauty of the architecture. A sobriety that contrasts deliberately with the living and colourful ecosystems that await.
In the Atrium, a space to “decompress” is created between the bustle of the city and the oasis of nature the Montréal Biodôme provides. And to make the experience even more immersive, accessing the ecosystems engages all of your senses, one by one: you hear, you smell, then you cross the entrance and finally, you see.
