The church was designed in 1824 by an Irish-American Protestant, James O’Donnell. The exterior facade is Gothic Revival and even though it was done in the early 19th century, it bears all […]

Centre Canadien d’Architecture
Canadian Center for Architecture

One of the few cities to dedicate a museum to the glory of building, the Centre Canadien d’Architecture in Montreal is itself glorious. The center is actually two separate buildings.
