Yet another interesting place to visit after the Canadian Center for Architecture while you are visiting Montreal, if you are into architecture and design. Like the Canadian Center for Architecture it’s almost all about architecture and design but focuses a bit more on the Quebec scene. It’s free to enter so there’s no excuse to not pay a visit.
It’s the type of location I like because it’s everything. It’s easily reachable as you are a few blocks away from subway station Berri-UQAM, the area is pretty dense and it’s still possible to miss it several times a day while walking in rue Saint-Catherine and staring at the entrance of foufounes electriques instead of going down Sanguinet street.
During my last visit, the exhibition staff was pretty keen on extending our tour outside the walls of the design center. We arrived with no plans and left with a dozen addresses to explore for the rest of the day, although a few weeks would have been better. If you are an architecture and design enthusiast, you know where to go!
