Designed by Bolduc et Venne, it is a normal side platform station, built in tunnel. A transept leads to a long set of stairways to the entrance, located in the centre of a public square. The temporary entrance building was recently replaced by a new permanent one, designed by Mario Bibeau.
Architecture and artEdit
The station features a set of three murals by Jean Cartier and George Juhasz at the transept level. Entitled Les Patriotes de 1837–1838, these tell the story of the Patriotes Rebellion and commemorate Louis-Joseph Papineau, the famous son of this station's namesake. Also, the redevelopment of the square around the station's entrance included the addition of a sculpture, Révolutions, by Michel de Broin.
Origin of the nameEdit
Papineau takes its name from nearby av. Papineau, named for Joseph Papineau, a notary, surveyor, politician, and defender of the rights of the people and of the French language. His son, Louis-Joseph Papineau, led the Patriotes Rebellion, the Lower Canadian portion of the Rebellions of 1837.
