Integration project of art and architecture located between the Palais des Congrès de Montréal and the Caisse de dépôt in the Quartier International de Montréal

Three colour photographs showing three views of the Montreal landscape  are placed in niches of the corridor linking the Palais des Congrès de Montréal and the Caisse de dépôt. Each photograph is placed behind a frosted glass, making it look fuzzy. Cut circles suggest in the background, black and white photographs that are concealed behind magnifying glasses forcing the visitor to come close to clearly distinguish the content of images. These images are linked to the theme of photography they accompany but also cause a shift that challenges the viewer’s perception. A fourth photograph shows a panoramic view of the Place Jean-Paul Riopelle and adjacent buildings. This photograph is a reminder of the place located directly above the corridor with a treatment that reflects the excitement of the outdoor life and allows a contrast to the niche offering rather a pause.
