Montreal was founded some 350 years ago. Since that time, the face of the city has changed dramatically. Wars, fires, demolitions, change of taste, ways of living, building technology, all contribute to the modification of the city on an ongoing basis. In this course we will try to follow the evolution of the city from its beginnings to the present from several points of view, including urbanism and architecture. To achieve this ambitious goal we will visit the city through video, audio and images. We will explore the different suburbs of Montreal by being there, at least virtually.
