Architecture and artEdit
Designed by Jean-Maurice Dubé, it is a normal side platform station, built in a deep open cut necessitated by the surrounding Utica shale formation. The ticket hall is located at transept level, and both the mezzanine and platforms are surmounted by high volumes. The volume over the tracks and platforms has a forced perspective; the ceiling lowers and the platform width shortens on the western end of the station. Accesses are located on either side of rue de Verdun.
The artwork running throughout the station consists of concrete walls with bas-reliefs in the upper parts and painted motifs on the lower, which were designed by Claude Théberge and Antoine D. Lamarche.
Origin of the nameEdit
This station is named for rue de Verdun and for the borough (formerly the city) of Verdun, in front of whose borough office the station is located. The land that would later constitute the borough was granted as a concession to Zacharie Dupuis in 1671; he named it Fief-de-Verdun for his birthplace at Saverdun in the south of France.
