Scope and Content

The series documents the design of Beaver Lake Pavilion, built for the City of Montréal between 1955 and 1959 as part of the redevelopment of Mount Royal Park. Sise worked with architect Guy Desbarats (1925-2003) on the project. The pavilion was built as part of a larger public works project directed by the City during the 1950s and 1960s during which time many park facilities were built. Beaver Lake Pavilion is recognized to have encouraged a renewal in the architectural forms of public facilities (1).

The file contains 43 working drawings which depict every aspect of construction of the pavilion (location plan, floor plans, elevations and sections, as well as numerous detail drawings). Included with the drawings is documentation collected by Sise to support his design, including a topographical map of the park (Mount-Royal - Design Map - 1877), as well as a 1955 book published by the City Planning Department of the City of Montreal (Montreal Master Plan - Open Spaces).

_____________________

La série documente la conception du pavillon du Lac aux Castors construit pour la Ville de Montréal entre 1955 et 1958, dans le cadre du réaménagement du parc du Mont Royal. Ce pavillon s'insère dans un vaste chantier dirigé par la Ville de Montréal durant les années 1950 et 1960 alors que de nombreux équipements de parcs furent construits. Sise s'était associé pour l'occasion à l'architecte Guy Desbarats (1925-2003). Le pavillon du Lac aux Castors est reconnu pour avoir favorisé le renouvellement des formes architecturales des équipements publics (1).

Le dossier comprend 43 dessins d'exécution réalisés à la mine de plomb sur toile concernant tous les aspects de la construction du pavillon (plan d'implantation, plans des étages, élévations et coupes, ainsi que des dessins de nombreux détails). De plus, il contient la documentation colligée par Sise pour l'appuyer dans sa tâche de conception, soit une reproduction d'une carte topographique du parc du Mont-Royal (Mount-Royal - Design Map - 1877), ainsi qu'une publication réalisée par le Département d'urbanisme de la Ville de Montréal en 1955 concernant les espaces publics (Montreal Master Plan - Open Spaces).
