Jean & Marcelle Coutu Pavilions

Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Year: 2005

Client: University of Montreal

The site of the Jean & Marcelle Coutu Pavilions benefits from a prime location overlooking Mount Royal and the Notre-Dame-des-Neiges. WAA designed the courtyard space created between the Jean & Marcelle Coutu, Aisenstadt and Paul-Desmarais pavilions. The landscaping concept for the courtyard was to take advantage of the site’s topography to provide a space where art and nature meet, and where the mountain can visually penetrate the university campus.’
