Square Viger from NIPpaysage on Vimeo.

PROJECT / BUILT WORK

Viger Square is a large park stretching over four city blocks covering the Ville-Marie expressway. The integrated vision for the future square is built around several elements: user-friendliness, aimed at creating a harmonious environment that mitigates the nuisances that led to the square’s decline; inclusiveness and a commitment to creating a space for all users, with flexible programming to encourage a wide range of uses; anchoring in the surrounding area in order to ensure that the space is perfectly integrated with the urban fabric; and, lastly, a commemorative element to restore the space’s iconic character. A major effort to highlight public art is at the core of the project: the works of Charles Daudelin, Claude Théberge and Peter Gnass will be transposed in a renewed and contemporary context.
