November has arrived, Montreal! Beat the post-Halloween blues with these events happening around town today!

Liquid Architecture

An immersive ‘liquid architecture’ exhibition will be taking place at Montreal’s Society of Technological Arts (SAT).

The exhibit is as an audiovisual experience that deconstructs 3D scans of monuments, buildings, and structures into a mesmerizing experience that will be projected on the dome of the SAT.

Where: SAT, 1201 Boul. Saint Laurent
When: October 31 to November 31, 2017 (From Tuesday to Saturday)
Time: 7 pm, each show runs for 40 minutes

Automated Environments

This conference will engage the rise of ecologies of automation and their impact on human life, habitation, agency, sovereignty, and imagination. We want to ask how the turn to “smart” and automated systems is historically related to changes in governmentality, politics, and economy, while considering the future of “intelligent” and smart design, habitats, economies, and polities.

Where: Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) 1920 Baile St.
When: November 1, 2017 from 1 to 8 pm

Where: Les Cours Mont-Royal, 1455 Peel Street,
When: Now until December 31

Go biking on one of the city’s bike paths

We can all agree that biking in Montreal is objectively non-advisable in winter. Sadly, we’re somehow almost there.

All the more reason to saddle up and take advantage of Montreal’s fantastic bike paths while fall is still here. That pleasant autumn air, long golden hours, and flashing auburn leaves – not a bad way to spend a day on a bike. Check out this list of 9 back paths in Montreal.

Where: Check out the list!
When: Anytime this fall
