Le développement Maisonneuve

One of the major events to have marked our landscape and circumscribed our space since the middle of the twentieth century is the ease with which one has access to property. For many, a dream has come true. Would-be purchasers can now choose from various materials, like aluminum, wood, stone and brick of various types, and can also select from a variety of colours and patterns. Thus, they are free to invent as they like, to choose how their residence will appear, what will be seen from the street. We then see the emergence of countless variations on very popular — and pervasive — models. What interests me here, in this neighbourhood that used to be called “développement Maisonneuve” is precisely this manifestation of the individual on architecture.
