This first project of its kind in Canada makes an architectural gem accessible to people with visual impairments, although an extremely large audience can also benefit from it.

The model is an attractive experience for all visitors who want to understand the architecture of the Olympic Stadium.

The Tower and the 1976 Olympic Games Olympic Stadium, a symbol of the city of Montreal in Québec, Canada, can be explored with the fingertips. They have been reproduced as a tactile model for people with visual disabilities, thanks to a collaboration between the @parcolympique@keroul.qc.ca and the inclusive design agency @tactilestudioparis.

The installation is composed of three tactile elements: the global view in low-relief, a plan view and a model.
