Architectural Photography: The Montreal Planetarium Rio Tinto Alcan by Cardin-Ramirez Julien and Ædifica

Last year, I had the pleasure to be the first photographer to access the brand new Montreal planetarium Rio Tinto Alcan. The building, designed by architects Cardin Ramirez Julien and Ædifica was inaugurated in April 2013. What I really like about the building is the mixed use of Wood and aluminum which makes for striking contrasts and a nice balance.

So take a walk with me around the building and enjoy the visit.
