New UdeM campus opens two buildings

The two massive glass boxes that constitute the new Université de Montréal campus are officially opening Friday. I tried to photograph them from the middle distance a couple of months ago and didn’t have much success, but you can see here in the Gazette photos, by a skilled photojournalist, that they’re not amenable to being photographed, as they’re so large and tend to half vanish into the sky no matter what you do.

Update: CBC shows us the new campus, and Le Devoir’s survey of the negative side of the whole thing, including an excerpt from an open letter from SMD which I mention in comments below.
