    CONVENING WITH COLOR

    The Palais des Congrès de Montréal, Québec is an expansion of an existing convention center that renews the life of its district and improves urban connections within the city. The colorful glass box was designed by a collaboration of Tétreault, Parent, Languedoc et Associés with Saia et Barbarese Architectes, Ædifica, and Hal Ingberg Architect. Nearly the entire southwest facade is made up of vertical panes of alternating colored glass, creating a multicolored skin of pink, chartreuse, blue, and yellow. Next week we'll look at the effect of all those colors on the building's interior and the adjacent streetscape.

Professor Harold Linton will explain how venerable design principles can be successfully applied to digital media.
