As part of the Canadian Centre for Architecture’s massive Montral in the ’60s show, architectural walking tours are being offered. Explore how Place Ville Marie’s construction over the CN railway lines provoked the construction of the CIBC, Chteau Champlain and Place Bonaventure. This tour of the new downtown core of the 1960s starts with a train ride through the Mount Royal tunnel. These tours of the icons and everyday of ’60s architecture in Montreal are offered in collaboration with DOCOMOMO.
Tours are available in English and French, and the fee is $10. Reservations are required, and the meeting location will be provided upon reservation. To reserve, please call (514) 846-8904 or visit www.cca.qc.ca/WalkingTours.
The tours are continuing on May 21, May 28, and June 4 at 2:00pm.
