Trois Architectes/ Trois Quartiers focuses on three Montréal-based architects whose work had a strong presence in a specific area of the city during the first half of the 20th century. Ludger Lemieux (1872-1953) in St-Henri, Ernest lsbell Barott (18841966) in St-Antoine on the southern and western slopes of Mount Royal, and Ernest Cormier (1885-1980) at the Université de Montréal.
The exhibition features prints, drawings, and photographs from the CCA Collection to provide insight both into the contributions of these architects to Montreal’s built environment and into the nature of urban development occurring concurrently in different parts of the city.
Trois Architectes/ Trois Quartiers is organised by Diana Archibald, Curator of Prints and Drawings, and Julia Parker, Assistant to the Director, Planning and Programs.
A bus tour complements the exhibition, organized by the CCA for Archifête, a week of events celebrating Québec’s national architecture week, 21-28 May 1983.
