About the artist
Instead of simply putting up another flat wall, the métro’s planning and engineering department took the lead and proposed an architectural wall covering consisting of twelve aluminium panels, each a different colour, giving the wall both perspective and rhythm.
The concept was developed by the STM’s communications and graphics design team, in cooperation with the city of Montréal’s intercultural affairs department, who selected the 34 languages.
