The Montreal Metro Project is an ongoing photo archive of Montreal’s internationally renowned metro system. The series captures the often overlooked architecture, design, and motion of each the many stations of the system.
Beginning in the 60’s, the construction of the metro system was headed by Montreal mayor Jean Drapeau. To design the stations, Drapeau held a competition among Canadian architects choosing the best to design their own station. Each station was uniquely designed by an individual architect and art installations were commissioned on a station to station basis. The system is now comprised of 68 stations in total transporting upwards of 1 million passengers daily.
