BANK OF MONTREAL CELEBRATES 200 YEARS WITH A 17-FOOT WATER-FREE, DIGITAL ‘WISH’ FOUNTAIN

bmo1The Bank of Montreal, headquartered in TORONTO, has installed a modern-day ‘wish’ fountain in the atrium at First Canadian Place, King Street West at Bay.

bmo2The fountain was developed by the Mosaic agency; technology and infrastructure by Globacore; web development & digital by Secret Location. Canadian multidisciplinary artists Jennifer Marman and Daniel Borins created the design  – which pays homage to “flip dots”, once used for train destination boards.  Sound effects are included.

bmo6Also for its 200th anniversary, BMO has released a book on its history, titled “A Vision Greater than Themselves: The Making of Bank of Montreal, 1817-2017,” written by McMaster University business historian Dr. Laurence B. Mussio.
