Île Saint-Bernard Observation Tower

Lemay's design for an observation tower calls for vertically assembled hewn and articulated logs, which allow the monument to blend into the forest landscape. The tower encourages upward movement, punctuated by a duality of sombre alcoves and luminous lookout points. It is a place to discover the natural riches and heritage buildings of the island, the flow of the powerful St. Lawrence River and in the distance, the Montreal cityscape.
