Beautifying a historic place

Vauquelin Square reaffirms itself as a distinguished destination in the heart of Montreal’s old administrative district, symbolizing the exercise of power. Its makeover by Lemay is timed to coincide with the 375th anniversary of the city. The redesign reinforces the singular status of the Canadian metropolis, marked by a contemporary flair that takes root in the past.  With a rich heritage imprint, Vauquelin Square is a privileged sanctuary for the collective memory.
