A Guidebook to Contemporary Architecture of Montreal showcases 65 important, and in some cases award-winning, buildings in this vibrant city. These are structures that have changed how architecture is thought of in Montreal, inpired transformations in neighborhoods around them, used materials innovatively, or been built with notable economy. A two-page spread covers each project, with a concise descriptive text alongside photos, drawings, and floor plans. Each building is presented by quarter or neighborhood, encouraging readers to develop their own self-guided walking tours. The front and back flaps fold out into maps to guide visitors through the highlighted quartiers.
