Looking at Montreal’s Contemporary Architecture
Speakers: Nancy Dunton & Helen Malkin
In A Guidebook to Contemporary Architecture in Montreal, Nancy Dunton and Helen Malkin looked at the architecture of the last thirty-five years in Montreal – the buildings and places which they would like people to discover. The book includes a whole gamut of building types from university buildings to houses to public places, all presented in the context of their neighbourhoods.

For 25 years, Peter Lanken has studied the work of Montreal architect Victor Bourgeau (1809 – 1888).
By means of measured drawings and photographs, he has begun to understand the excellence of
Bourgeau’s Quebec churches. Lanken’s lecture, timed to coincide with an exhibition at the Gallery at Victoria Hall, will chronicle Bourgeau’s life and describe some of his buildings. A visit to the exhibition will follow.
