Sculptural installation consisting of three elements referring to the advent of the new millennium and the rural past of Ville Saint-Laurent. A pyramidal aluminum structure sits on the right side of the Place de l'an 2000. A safe containing 150 items offered by citizens can be found inside the pyramid, which evokes the success of Saint-Laurent. An engraved metal plate adorns each side of the sculpture: culture, technology, industry, trade and prosperity. The sculpture entitled Parvis et portail # 22 occupies the center of the square. It combines two vertical elements of polished aluminum that face in opposite directions and point to the old and the new areas of Saint-Laurent.
