Montreal, Canada's second largest city and the centre of the francophone province of Quebec, is a sprawling and green metropolis where French, British, and American architectural traditions meet. Many buildings and streets bear witness to the influence of the Parisian Ecole des Beaux-Arts; there are structures in the tradition of the Chicago School; and the city also has an extensive heritage of both elegant Art Deco and massive Brutalist edifices.
This book presents a total of 130 buildings and projects from the almost 400-year history of the port city on the St. Lawrence River. This journey through time is complemented by guest contributions from renowned experts, for example on the original Northern Deco style, the buildings of Expo 1967, and art in Montreal's metro.
