Saint-Pierre

Exploring the architecture, art & design of metro stations around the world.

 
 

Neither Here, Nor There explores the Montreal neighborhood formerly known as Ville Saint-Pierre—an enclave confined by a highway to the south and east, train tracks to the west, and a hill to the north. The area, only 2 square kilometers, became part of the neighboring region of Lachine in 1999, at which point it lost its economic independence. Saint-Pierre’s grocery stores and banks have all since left, forcing its roughly 5,000 residents to venture elsewhere for essential services. The series examines the way in which the region's borders and its loss of civil independence have defined the neighbourhood.
