Westmount Square, Montreal (Six Photographs)

Westmount Square was built in 1967; the architect was Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. It’s an iconic compound of commercial and residential towers, with a mall underneath. Walking through it holds memories for me from years ago but this time it was the minimalist modernism that struck me. The few people and odd color (the balloons in the last photo) seemed out-of-place. I am not critical, it is unique, but depending on how you approach it your impressions can change.

  2. These are stunning images – really wonderful. I’m familiar with Mies’ work, but I don’t think I’ve seen this project before. Thanks.
