COMPETITION / PROJECT

Winner of the design competition organised by Ville de Montréal (2011). Running along Lachine Canal, Smith Street is transformed into a reinvigorated collective public space. Inspired by the raw, robust and informal character of this railroad generated landscape, the project seeks to seize and amplify the qualities of this landscape in order to reclaim and regenerate the panoply of disjointed residual spaces into a structured place, synthesising the identities of old and new Griffintown. As a hybrid between a garden, a street, a park and a public space, Promenade Smith reinvents urban archetypes, and proposes a new synergy between public space and urban ecology.
