Douglas & McIntyre

A Guidebook to Contemporary Architecture in Montreal

Second Edition

Updated from the popular 2008 edition—now with over a hundred entries including twenty-five new projects with illustrations and colour photos.


The continued growth of Montreal is remarkable with a wave of new architectural projects completed since the publication of the 2008 edition of A Guidebook to Contemporary Architecture in Montreal. This expanded second edition offers over twenty-five new entries including a new quartier (neighbourhood), revised text and maps for existing quartiers, as well as new photos and updates to the projects previously highlighted in the first edition. A two-page spread is dedicated to each project and contains descriptive text alongside colour photos, drawings and floor plans. Folding maps on the front and back cover flaps have been updated and accompany readers through the highlighted quartiers, making it easy for visitors to take a self-guided walking tour—and all projects are accessible by public transit. From the revised opening essay to the newly-added closing conversation with McGill University’s School of Architecture professor Ricardo L. Castro and Montreal architect Martin Houle, this new edition is necessary reading for both architecture enthusiasts and lovers of Montreal.
