Urban moment of peace

Posted in studio 2a_2009, thoughts by Sarah Gelbard on 9 November 2009

On Saturday night, I found myself on the roof of a four-storey apartment building in Montreal, very close to the McGill campus. Even though there was a party with about a hundred people beneath our feet, and even more milling about at the street level, it was nearly silent up here. For a moment, I stopped and just looked around; the tall buildings further off, the McGill campus, the car head- and street lights reflecting from the street level, and a massive glowing cross atop a hill in the Parc Mont-Royal.

I thought it was interesting how easy it was to find a moment of peace in the middle of such an urbanised area – albeit on a rooftop you weren’t supposed to be on.
