The UQAM garden
Rue Sanguinet, devant le pavillon de Design
Although it’s only a stone's throw from St. Catherine Street, this discreet enclave, located in front of the Design pavilion, is an oasis of calm. Nestled among the trees, its benches and tables offer a peaceful retreat. I like this quiet spot that enables you to escape from the constant hustle and bustle of the area and where, between classes, students come to relax when the weather cooperates. And what many people don't realize is that, in the evening, no matter what season, the walls come alive thanks to video projections that feature all sorts of images created by artists. It's totally unexpected – somewhere between a dream and magic – a place you might come across, randomly, but whose effect remains with you long after you've left.
