The remarkable achievements of Roger D’Astous (1926-1998), as seen through the eyes of his clients and colleagues, based on unpublished archives. One of Canada's leading architects in the 20th century and a student of Frank Lloyd Wright, D’Astous devoted his life to defining a nordic architecture. He designed two Montreal symbols: the Château Champlain hotel and the Olympic Village. D’Astous fell from grace but experienced a rennaissance in the 1980s.
