Supercity: Living In Legoland

An artist and writer assembles a metropolis of his own imagination using children's building kits.

"[Douglas] Coupland's Super City vision runs concurrently, and fittingly, with the CCA's other big show of the season, The Sixties: Montreal Thinks Big, which celebrates the ambitious planning that Montreal experienced during that decade. With this fetishizing of all things urban, Coupland confirms that his perspective is one of modernity."
