For Canada, architecture has a place and there are several buildings which will catch your attention. Here, we are going to look at some of the buildings you should visit and enjoy their sight.

The Mies Van Rohe Gas Station in Quebec State

Canada citizens are familiar with this gas station, but guests won’t have an idea about anything like that. Many gas stations are made from concrete and have closed walls. However, this gas station in Montreal has walls made of glass and the lighting is amazing. The station was built to offer refilling and sales services to customers, and a car wash was also underway before its closure.
