The Quartier des Spectacles Partnership, in collaboration with the Ville de Montréal, invites creative Montrealers to participate in the Create Winter at Quartier des Spectacles competition. The challenge is to create three exceptional day-and-night winter experiences on place Émilie-Gamelin, place des Festivals, and the area surrounding the Saint-Laurent metro station.
Three competitions in one
The two-phase competition is open to individual designers and to teams with at least one lead designer working in a discipline related to planning and design (architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, urban design, interior design, environmental design, industrial design, graphic design) and/or in event design, multimedia, the performing arts (set design, direction, lighting design, video) and the visual and media arts.
The competition calls for the creation of three independent urban installations on three sites in the Quartier des Spectacles. The installations, comprising day and night components, must create a distinct ambiance and offer a unique urban experience to the public. The festive, playful and participatory creations should promote foot traffic and revitalize the public spaces.
All participants must be able to deliver their projects on a turnkey basis, either alone or in partnership with a producer for the production and installation phase.
