Fall 2018, ARCH 201 – Architecture and Urban Design Studio
The five sections of ARCH 201 class and Option 1 students visited Montreal, Quebec in September on a study trip lead by professors Anderson, Bhatia, Gutierrez, Hirschmann and Davids. This study trip supports the ARCH 201 studio, which selects a different urban problem to focus on each year. Situated between the Rivière des Prairies to the north, Mont Royal to the west, and the Saint Lawrence river to south, Montreal is a city that can be said to have been founded twice: first aboveground at Ville Marie in 1642, and again underground at Place Ville Marie in 1960. This juxtaposition of tradition and innovation within the natural landscape, contribute to Montreal's identity as one of the most innovative developments in the Americas.
