The Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) Garden

Public art
Downtown

The CCA Garden combines sculpture and public space, lying at the edge of an escarpment facing the CCA main building from the south side of René-Lévesque Boulevard. The site was granted to the CCA by the City of Montréal in 1986. Designed by Montréal artist-architect, Melvin Charney, as part of the Québec government’s competition program for the integration of art and architecture, the garden is laid out as a series of narrative episodes–Orchard, Meadow, Arcade, Esplanade, Belvedere, and Allegorical Columns—that collectively reference the history of the city and the architecture that inhabits it.
