SAINT-GAETAN CHURCH, MONTREAL

Architecture

This unique modern-style church has been designed by the architect Louis Lapierre. He gave iSCAN the mandate to produce a precise documentation of this unique property. Built in 1966 and 1967, the building is composed of four hyperbolic paraboloid concrete sails resting on four pillars of support, which are the structural principle of this church. The space created by the supporting pillars clears the whole interior and the concrete sails engender an impressive wave effect.

For a better visualization of the site, we invite you to view the 3D animation attached to this project.

The church is now the First Armenian Evangelical Church of Montreal..
