The exhibition presents three aspects of the villas described by the Roman writer, Pliny the Younger, in the first century AD: their direct historical influence on architecture, the indirect influence they have exerted on architects as a model for study, and their impact on the classical tradition in the city of Montreal.
The Villas of Pliny and Classical Architecture opened in its original form at the Institut Français d’Architecture in May 1982. The CCA added original works of art and related the material to Montréal. It drew architectural prints, drawings, treatises and historic photographs from the CCA Collection, as well as from collections in Montréal and abroad.
Curated by Maurice Culot, Institut Français d’Architecture, Paris.
