The project will be completed in 2019. For Planners: The new amphitheatre will host small- and large-scale events as well as shows and festivals throughout the year. CITÉ MÉMOIRE: MONTRÉAL EN HISTOIRES Montréal's storied past comes alive via the Cité Mémoire augmented-reality walking tour. Devel- oped by Montréal-based Space & Dream, dozens of stories are told via words, music, photos and videos projected onto walls, cobblestones and trees throughout Old Montréal and the Old Port. Highlights include the founding of Montréal, the legacy of Maurice "Rocket" Richard, and the story of Expo 67. For Planners: Montréal en Histoires offers guided group tours as well as a techno-historic treasure hunt activity. There's no better proof of Montréal's creative ingenuity than a collection of three-dozen legacy initiatives established to commemorate the city's milestone 375th anniversary. Designed to transform how one experiences this exceptional destination, the projects represent collaborative efforts among the city's best artistic, technological, scientific and social influencers and builders. The ambitious projects honour the past and showcase the future. The result is a feast for the senses, numerous new pathways of discovery, and the next evolution of this extraordinary and spirited city. Here's a closer look at a few of these projects.
