Just because the new beach has received most of the design attention doesn’t mean Cormier neglected the upperlevel parking lot. The Societe du Vieux Port de Montreal spruced up the lot’s landscaping with larches, willows, shrubs, and perennials, and even added a few artistic touches, too. At the west end of the lot, the Porcupine, an abstract installation made of blue sticks, inhabits a traffic circle, and large white dots note individual parking spots on the lot’s surface.
