Closing dinner

My Session Status

6:00 PM, Saturday 28 May 2022 (5 hours)
La Biosphère - Belvédère et salle panoramique

We offer a unique experience for the closing dinner of this conference in Montreal, in the former U.S. pavilion of Expo'67 - the most popular of the exhibition, with 5.3 million visitors: the "geodesic dome" designed by architect Buckminster Fuller (1895-1983) with the collaboration of Shoji Sadao. The self-supporting steel honeycomb structure, covered with a polymer skin, was burned down in 1976 and redeveloped in the 1990s, according to the plans of architect Éric Gauthier, into an environmental museum called "the Biosphere", winner in 1995 of an award from the Ordre des architectes du Québec.

The meal itself will be the work of Ron Weiser (Tout un fumoir), who will welcome you at his barbecue not far from the metro exit (Jean-Drapeau station). This welcome, accompanied by a cocktail and hosted by singer and guitarist Sylvain Poirier, will continue on the Biosphère's belvedere. From there you will then be taken to the panoramic room where, while enjoying  dinner or singing with Sylvain, we will contemplate the sunset behind downtown Montreal.
