Casavant Freres - III/23 ranks

A Unique Facade

Casavant was proud to be part of this unique setting. The new mechanical action organ built by Casavant in a French style has three manuals, including two under expression, and at completion will have 29 stops and 35 ranks of pipes. The case was designed through collaboration between Sasaki Associates and Didier Grassin of Casavant, featuring sets of facade pipes "floating" in front of a wooden scrim. It contrasts the linear verticality of polished tin with fluid layers of wood.
