Architecte - Étienne Gaboury

Étienne Gaboury (Archives – Société Historique de Saint-Boniface)

 

All members of the ACCSB extend their sincere sympathies to the family of Étienne Gaboury.

As proof of his conviction, Étienne participated in the creation of the Ami.e.s du carré civique de Saint-Boniface in May 2021 as a founding member.

Étienne is the architect who developed the concept for the City of St. Boniface Civic Centre in 1964 and designed the Brutalist-style buildings that comprise the police station, the municipal court and the public health unit. The ACCSB's mandate is to ensure the sustainability of this civic square for the benefit of Manitoba's Francophonie.

During his lifetime, Étienne was relieved and pleased that the buildings at 227 and 233 Provencher Boulevard were granted historic designation by the City of Winnipeg, ensuring the continuity of the entire civic square.

We will miss his wisdom, his open-mindedness and his commitment to the Francophonie. We still always consider him the father of the St. Boniface Civic Square.

We are confident that Étienne's vision will be preserved for generations to come.
