Marcel Raby

Sculptural grille (1976)

Inspired by the symbols of the Olympic Games, this grille created by the station’s architect is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Covering a ventilation shaft, it is composed of vertical plates linked by tubes painted in the Olympic colours.

About the artist

City of Montréal architect Marcel Raby designed two neighbouring stations, Joliette and Pie-IX, on the green line. He made a point of designing the artwork for these stations himself, with the exception of Jordi Bonet’s mural at Pie-IX.
