Urban Planning and Architecture

This course starts with a section on Montréal’s physical geography to review the characteristic elements of the Montréal landscape, the city’s geology, topography and climate, as well as the region’s biogeography and hydrography. The Urban Planning and Architecture section then looks at Montréal’s built landscape, the evolution of its architecture, urban planning, and particular vocabulary, along with its French, British, American and Quebec influences (vernacular architecture). Particular attention is paid to the underground city and pedestrian network. The last section on public art will reveal the city’s commemorative monuments and many modern and contemporary art pieces incorporated into its architecture.
