aluminum joints at Mont-Royal station and large sculptural grilles at Langelier station in the Montreal metro.
Charles Daudelin was awarded the Quebec government's Prix Paul-Émile-Borduas in 1985 [1], and was made a member of the Ordre national du Québec in 1998. He died in Kirkland, Quebec (now in Montreal); his last work, Le Passage du 2 avril, is named for the date of his death and installed in front of Kirkland's former town hall.
