A Short Metro Ride Away

Canadian Centre of Architecture

Follow the floating chair that’s become a local landmark and you will find your way to the CCA Garden, designed by Melvin Charney. The garden is part of the Canadian Centre of Architecture, which stands as an appropriately Montreal collision of old and new; with one façade bearing the historic Shaunghnessy mansion, and the other (facing Baile Street) composing as modern an example of architecture as can be imagined. In three words: Only in Montreal!
