Between the Gérard-Morisset and Pierre-Lassonde pavilions, the more than $80 million project will house the largest public works by Jean-Paul Riobell in the world.

“If there is something that characterizes Quebec, it is its cultural identity. It is inevitable that we have strong cultural spaces that testify to this richness,” he commented on the importance of investing in culture.
