I remember with great disgust the previous ottawa congress center. An awful brutalist concrete box, the place looked like a bomb shelter from the outside and felt like a giant mousetrap from the inside. I did not return to Ottawa until after the new center was completed and had my fist event a couple of weeks ago. The new place is magnificently designed with beautiful vistas thanks to the innovative use of glass as part of the structure. I went for my university reunion celebration and the setting provides great spaces to celebrate. Looking through its glass panes, I could almost feel transported to Parliament Hill and the river beyond. You'll feel as if you're floating along the canal below. I don't think there's much to do at the center if you're not attending a specific event. I think it'd be great if they hosted temporary exhibits or some other activities maybe even some performance art. Overall, a great place with a great future ahead of it.
