dc.descriptionThe northwest boundary fence and entry, detail of the pedestrian entrance; The Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) is an architecture museum and research centre located in Montreal. The architect Phyllis Lambert is the founder and director. The CCA shares the site of the historic Shaughnessy House built in 1874 to the design of William T. Thomas. The new building, designed by Peter Rose with consulting architect Phyllis Lambert and associate architect Erol Argun, was integrated with the Shaughnessy House in 1989. Simultaneously, conservation and restoration of the original 20,000-square-foot structure were carried out under the supervision of Denis Saint-Louis. With its Devencore Conservatory and striking reception rooms, Shaughnessy House is today one of the rare 19th-century Montréal houses open to the public. The building --130,000 square feet housing exhibition galleries, the Paul Desmarais Theatre, and the Bookstore, as well as the Library, state-of-the-art conservation and collection facilities, curatorial offices, and Study Centre in the Alcan Wing --has received numerous design awards in the United States and Europe. The CCA garden is laid out as a series of narrative episodes --Orchard, Meadow, Arcade (mirror of the Shaughnessy House), Esplanade, Belvedere, and Allegorical Columns --each of which relates to the wider history of architecture as well as to the city that surrounds the site.
