dc.descriptionView into the "colonnes allegoriques"; The CCA Garden restores the urban fabric of an area deeply scarred by mid-20th-century highway engineering. Initiated as part of the Québec government's program for the integration of art and architecture into the landscape, the garden faces the CCA from the south side of boulevard René-Lévesque. This site was granted to the CCA by the City of Montréal in 1986, and the design by Montréal artist-architect Melvin Charney integrates sculpture and public space with remarkable results. At once a garden in the city and a museum in the open air, it evokes the richly diverse history of landscape design and initiates a dialogue between nature, architecture, and the urban fabric. The 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.
