COMPETITION / PROJECT

Competition winning proposal retained for the building of the new Hospital Centre for the Université de Montréal [CHUM]. The landscape aspect of the project opens the complex to the city by clearing two public spaces at the two main entrance areas of the hospital. Highly responsive to the context, the design of those spaces sets the tone for the identity and the character of Montreal’s Quartier de la Santé. The project also features 7 roof gardens recounting a few of the chapters in the age-old story of the relation of plants and medicine. The overall scheme achieves LEED-NC silver performance, as well as universal accessibility.
