Villa-Maria (André Léonard)

André Léonard

Circles (1981)

Polymer concrete and stainless steel
Location: throughout the station

The station’s architect produced two murals each consisting of five dial-shaped polymer concrete disks. By adding a slit to each circle and rotating each slit 45 degrees relative to its neighbour, he produced a feeling of movement and directionality.

The yellow circles, those closest to the station’s exit, invite the traveller out into the sunlight.
