Lumocité to Turn Quebec City Landmarks into 3D

Lumocité to Turn Quebec City Landmarks into 3D

Imagine that the Palais Montcalm is filled with water or that its stones start dancing. In a few minutes, they could also be on fire, demolish themselves right before your eyes or even explode – all thanks to Philippe Bergeron who heads up the American architectural mapping team at Lumocité, the Quebec Carnival’s latest attraction.

Wednesday at 18h00, at the Notre-Dame de Québec basilica-cathedral, the Morrin Centre, and the Plains of Abraham’s fortifications will be transformed by companies coming from Budapest, Geneva, and Quebec for the sound and 3D lighting show which promises to give chills to the spectators.

It is an alliance between fiction and reality, the only limit is your imagination. With the help of the very precise structure plans, image specialists created a scenario under the theme of winter where it will be possible to see the Palais Montcalm go through many modifications. The artists keep the rest secret for the official release of their work, which will be played out during the evenings until February 9th.


All week: regular activities will go on. People can take rides in dog sleighs, slide down ice-slides, and even visit Bonhomme’s palace.

    Incredible as Lumocite is, it is not a good thing for everyone. I live on Rue Ste Anne, and they block my parking completely from 6 – 11. I think that they need to re-think the sites next year.
