One of the more obscure metro stations in town, it is a rather interesting piece of architecture. Set up kind of like an iceberg, where what is on top does not reveal the size of what is below.
Opened on September 3, 1978, it was designed by Jean-Maurice Dubé (who also designed 172, 80e Avenue in Lasalle, the École Marguerite-De Lajemmeraisand 5500, boulevard Lasalle) with artistic intervention by Antoine D. Lamarche and Claude Théberge (who also did the reliefs on the de L’Eglise metro station)
That’s my favorite view in the station. Very futuristic from a 1960s/70s perspective. Very Battlestar Galactica.zeke Categories: Art, Métro, Montréal, Photo Essay, Public Art, Sculpture, Visual Art Tags: Antoine D. Lamarche, Claude Théberge, Jean-Maurice Dubé, Metro Verdun | Comments Off
