La Cath?drale Catholique St. Andrew

Soaring skywards with its bold array of coloured brick, stone and slate, St. Andrew's Roman Catholic Cathedral displays the confident spirituality that characterizes the best religious architecture of the High Victorian Gothic style. Designed in 1892 by Perrault and Mesnard of Montr?al, St. Andrew's was inspired by the medieval cathedrals of Europe, whose emphatic verticality and picturesque asymmetry greatly appealed to 19th-century Roman Catholic taste. The wall patterns, created by combining building materials of different colours, are a distinctive feature of the mature phase of the Gothic Revival style.

Pointant vers le ciel son ensemble audacieux et color? de briques, de pierres et d'ardoises, la cath?drale catholique St. Andrew t?moigne de la spiritualit? confiante propre ? la meilleure architecture religieuse de style n?o-gothique de l'apog?e victorien. Con?ue en 1892 par Perrault et Mesnard, de Montr?al, elle s'inspire des cath?drales de l'Europe m?di?vale, dont la verticalit? hardie et l'asym?trie pittoresque plaisaient tant aux catholiques du XIXe si?cle. Les d?corations murales, cr??es par des mat?riaux de couleurs diff?rentes, sont ?galement typiques de la p?riode de maturit? du n?o-gothique.
