une tour sur la montagne
L'architecture d'Ernest Cormier
et sa vie avec Clorinthe Perron
An inquiry into the astonishingly rich and passionate life of Canadian architect Ernest Cormier, who designed the iconic building of the University of Montréal on Mount Royal, the home of the Canadian Supreme Court in Ottawa, and the doors of the United Nations in New York. Photographs stretching back more than a century reveal Cormier's long relationship with two sisters, Clorinthe and Cecile Perron, who lived with him for six decades. A look at the unorthodox life and immense accomplishments of one of the most important Canadian architects of the first half of the 20th Century.
