dc.descriptionWater channel, detail; In the 1980s the city of Montreal announced its intention to transform the block into the Place du 350e, a square to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the founding of Montreal. An architectural competition to redesign the square was won by Melvin Charney, the internationally acclaimed, Montreal-based architect and artist whose works include a highly regarded garden on the site of the Canadian Centre for Architecture. Charney's redesign of the square included a multi-formed sculpture, 'Gratte-ciel, cascades d'eau, rues, ruisseaux ... une construction' (Skyscraper, Waterfall, Roads, Brooks … a Construction), which expressed the larger logic with which he had reimagined the square.
