After winning the summer Olympic Games of 1976, the city of Montréal entrusted the realization of the olympic park to the French architect Roger Taillibert, who built an ellipsoid multi-sport stadium, with 65 000 seats, open in the centre and surmounted by a leaning tower of 175 metres : the highest in the world at the time! Roger Taillibert has devoted his career to building for sport. The Parc des Princes in Paris, built between 1969 and 1972, remains one of his major achievements. Elected to the Académie des beaux-arts in 1983, president of the Académie in 2004 and 2010, president of the Institut de France in 2010, he is also a member of the Académie des sports. To accompany the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Montreal Olympics this work gives us an overview of the designs and sketches of Roger Taillibert, revealing the process of reflection and the development by which this building became the emblem of sport and tourism in Montréal, a building which has received 67 million visitors since its inauguration.
