Jean-Noel Desmarais Pavilion…

The third of four parts.  The campus of Montreal’s famed Musée des Beaux-Arts Montreal, or Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, is composed of a number of pavilions, each one dedicated to specific disciplines, i.e., ancient art; archaeology; decorative arts and design; modern and contemporary art; and Quebec and Canadian art.

The Jean-Noël Desmarais Pavilion, the large modern building directly across the street, showcases the museum’s modern and contemporary art collection.

Her light-filled, soaring atrium, understated glass staircase and hallway connecting underground to the Michal and Renata Hornstein Pavilion across the street are a tribute to modernism.
