Révolutions (2003)

Public art collection of the City of Montréal
Location: outside the station

Michel de Broin’s inspiration for this spectacular work was the celebrated spiral staircase that plays such a prominent role in the Montréal landscape. The shape also resonates with the metal superstructure of the Jacques Cartier Bridge and the whirls and loops of the rollercoasters at La Ronde.
