The Métis shoreline, its biological and geological history, recomposed: in an environment covered with tall cultivated plants, architect Pierre Thibault has arranged slices of land lifted from their natural environment, be it living or fossil. Around an imprint recalling the primordial river/sea are set individual shapes, colours, textures and odours of plant and mineral matter from the salt marsh, the tidal flat, the sunken Micmac shore, a furrow of cultivated wheat and virgin forest. This garden-poem is very typical of the practice of Pierre Thibault's team, acclaimed for their sensitivity to the Quebec landscape in their architecture and installations.
