A Tribute to Lemay’s Visionary Founding Architect

Lemay

Georges E. Lemay transformed public space, drove modernism in Quebec


Montréal, Canada, 2017-10-25 -

Georges E. Lemay, founder of Montreal-based architecture, planning and design firm Lemay, passed away on September 30, 2017, at the age of 88. He leaves to mourn his son Louis T. Lemay, current president of the firm, his daughters Ève and Brigitte and their families, and many friends and partners. Those who knew him remember a steadfast visionary, determined to advance the architectural profession. Through his projects, he intended for Quebec’s identity to flourish and nurtured the integration of art and architecture, a notion of transdisciplinary collaboration and democratization of art that guides the firm to this day.


“My father made an impression on his collaborators with his generosity and his absolute dedication to his craft, as much as his extraordinary influence on cityscapes across the province,” said Louis T. Lemay.


Georges E. Lemay cofounded, with Claude Leclerc, the architectural practice of Lemay Leclerc Architectes in 1957. The firm had first made a name for itself in Montreal, with the Church of Saint-Jean Baptiste de la Salle, the De l’Église metro station, Cégep André-Laurendeau and various banks and credit unions. These functionalist projects pushed the boundaries of concrete and made institutional architecture accessible to everyone – reflecting Quebec’s newfound openness to the world.


Following several incarnations in its first decades, the architectural firm grew steadily in stature and breadth until the turn of the 21st century, when it began taking on large-scale, cityscape-defining projects such as 1000 de la Gauchetière[i], the Bell Centre[ii] and, internationally, the Martyrs’ Memorial community centre in Algiers, Algeria.


Louis T. Lemay recalled that “my father’s greatest wish was to develop modern architecture, to make it evolve and ensure its sustainability. There is no doubt he succeeded in that.”


The passing of Georges E. Lemay coincides with the 60th anniversary of the firm he founded, which launched celebrations of his legacy in recent weeks. Please visit Lemay.com to find out more.
