The exhibition is also an opportunity to revisit Erickson’s connections with Montreal. Between 1946 and 1950, he studied at McGill University’s School of Architecture under the architect John Bland and the artist and designer Gordon Webber.
A special section prepared by the Centre de Design presents five projects designed in the context of Montreal: two student projects at McGill University (1946-50); two pavilions for Expo ‘67; and an intriguing project for a residential complex designed with the idea of providing a monumental entrance to downtown Montreal.
