Grain elevators and modern architecture 

Grain elevators

Grain elevators erected to store grain shipped from western Canada for export are the last remains in the Old Port of the huge structures that inspired Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius in their quest for a modern form of architecture. 

Habitat ’67 (on a pier across from the Old Port), designed by architect Moshe Safdie for Expo 67, is part of the architectural heritage of the 20th century. 


Spectacular sights, 1880 and 1925
