The Use of Models: Nineteenth-Century Church Architecture in Québec

Exhibition, Octagonal gallery, 18 May 1994 to 11 September 1994

The architectural model offers a means by which architectural ideas can be shared among architects, builders, and interested laymen. The Use of Models: Nineteenth-Century Church Architecture in Québec demonstrates a certain variety in functions ascribed to wooden architectural models around 1850.

Witness to an era that saw architectural practice developing a heightened professionalism, the architectural model reveals the divergent interests of all those who wished to participate in the very conception of a given project.
