The Centre Phi, which opened in 2012, is a place for Montreal’s artists to both create and showcase their art. The new addition to Old Montreal’s cultural scene is a versatile space able to accommodate conferences, screenings, concerts and installations. The building also has studio spaces for artists working in the digital/immersive arts and innovative filmmaking. Whatever day you visit, you’ll likely find a leading artist talking about his or her work, often for free, and screenings of independent films in both French and English. If the rooftop terrace is open, don’t miss the views of Habitat 67, the famous community and housing project designed by Moshe Safdie for Expo 67 that has been described as one of the most important buildings in Canada.
