addled architecture: what lies beneath

February 28

It has been some time since I have featured misguided ‘improvements’ in my ‘addled architecture‘ series, so here’s one I spotted on a Montreal street on my last visit to this historically beautiful city. As I was wandering the city admiring some truly stunning architecture, I stopped for a few minutes on this one to linger and to ponder what on earth were they thinking?! I can’t quite determine if the ’80s applied metallic ‘frame’ ever had anything inside and if the intention was to cover completely the old details beneath or if the old facade was what it was trying to highlight rather than desecrate. Whatever the intent, on the surface it appears to be definitely misguided.

    Interesting. Would love to know what the ‘creator’ was thinking (or not thinking!).
