Notre-Dame-de-la-Defense School


Charles-Auguste Eugène Larose

Little is known about the life and career of Eugène Larose. We do know that he designed a number of schools for the Commission scolaire de Montréal, including Notre-Dame-de-la-Défense, Cherrier (today Espace-Jeunesse) and Saint-François-Solano. Some heritage experts consider him one of the harbingers of modernism for school architecture in Montreal.
