DENDRITES

A Monumental Public Work

Commissioned by the City of Montreal and situated at the core of the recently developed Interna tional Civil Aviation Organization Plaza (ICAO), Dendrites is the newest monumental public work by the artist Michel de Broin. The word dendrite refers to the branched projections of a neuron, which propagate cerebral stimulation; the term is derived from the Greek dendron, also the word for tree.

Extending across both sides of Notre Dame Street in the downtown core, the work is comprised of two sculptural stairways directly modeled on the structure of the neuron.
