  1. I'm doing a handful (likely 25) of the more famous buildings in Montréal rendered in Illustrator. You can follow the progress here, if you'd like: Here's the list - 1000 de la Gauchetiere - 1250 René Levesque - McGill college building - KPMG building - Stade Olympique - Saputo field - Berri-UQAM station - Habitat 67 - Buckminster Fuller biosphere - Montreal casino - Bell Centre - Saint Joseph's Oratory - McGill Arts building - Atwater Market - Bonsecour Market - Farine Five Roses factory sign - Notre-Dame Basilica - Sun Life building - Quai de L'Horage with Pont Jacques Cartier and La Ronde - Gare Viger - Old Montreal street view - Place Ville Marie - City Hall - Mount Royal As I complete each city landmark, I'll strike it off the list.
  2. The British flag is only known as the Union Jack if it's flying on a ship. Otherwise, it's just known as the Union flag, or flag of the British Commonwealth.
  3. I've been a fan of the Ottawa Senators peace tower logo for over a decade, but feel it needs to be modernized. I decided to use my new dot graph book and technical markers to redo this logo. Here's the original for reference:
  4. Wow, that's really sad. It was a really nice building.
  5. Monument to the uprising of the people of Kordun and Banija (simply known as Petrova Gora Monument) is a World War II monument built on Petrovac, the highest peak of Petrova Gora (English: Peter's Mountain), a mountain range in central Croatia. It was the site of one of the tragic World War II episodes, when about 300 desperate Serb peasants armed only with pitchforks, died attacking members of the Ustaše militia at the top of the mountain, during breakthrough of the enemy ring in 1942.
  6. Apologies. I started this thread so that I could share my designs, but everyone was sharing brutalist buildings in their area and it's been inspiring seeing structures I wouldn't normally see here in Canada.
  7. Former Bulgarian Communist Headquarters.
  8. Museum of Old and New Art (Mona) in Tasmania, Australia. Not entirely brutalist on the outside, but it certainly borrows characteristics.
  10. Yes, it is. It's (former) Yugoslavian futurist brutalism.

    Lionel-Groulx is the second busiest station after Berri. Named after a local priest, who taught at Université de Montréal, and influenced many prominent people in the cities history, including my favourite, former Mayor Jean Drapeau, who was responsible for bringing Expo 67 to the city.
