Today’s post is a very short and sweet one: I found this indoor rock-climbing gym, called “Allez Up”, by Smith Vigeant Architects in Montreal (Canada).

For the article on this modern and impressive piece of architecture, you can visit the Contemporist blog, but what really grabbed me about the architecture is how the climbing walls look a bit like a Jackson Pollock artwork: the multi-coloured grips and ledges look more like paint spatters than ledges, don’t you think?
