"The inauguration of the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium is the culmination of a wonderful project which began with the creation of our partnership nearly ten years ago," said Rio Tinto Alcan chief executive Jacynthe Côté. "For Rio Tinto Alcan, the design and mission of the new Planetarium corresponds with our commitment to sustainable development and our efforts to encourage young people to stay in school," she continued.
"This is a unique centre for ongoing education that allows young visitors to gain a better understanding of nature and cultivate their interest in the sciences. It's an excellent way to stimulate young people's appetite for learning. The Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium is definitely a great asset for Montreal and will contribute to the education of our young people," concluded Côté.
With its innovative approach to astronomy, the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium is redefining the very concept of a planetarium and is positioning itself as pioneer on the world stage. The building, with its bold design, incorporates the most advanced principles of sustainable development. It was built according to LEED standards and is seeking Platinum certification. It is designed as an ecologically responsible building which showcases the virtues of aluminium, a modern metal that is versatile, durable and infinitely recyclable. Equipped with cutting-edge technology, the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium offers visitors a novel experience of the Universe by pairing complementary shows, one more poetic in tone and the other more scientific.
