The Ville de Montréal has launched a multidisciplinary design competition for playful urban furniture on the future Esplanade Clark. “The design competition will allow us to select a playful movable furniture project that will supplement the conventional furniture on Esplanade Clark.
In particular, we want to set up a carousel and fountains to delight people of all ages. Their installation will give this new public space a festive allure, inviting people to relax, cool off and have fun, in the shadow of the large urban towers,” says Magda Popeanu, Vice-president of the executive committee, responsible for culture and Montreal's diversity.
The Ville de Montréal will allocate a budget of nearly $1.3 million for this competition and for the design and manufacture of the playful furniture collection, which will be delivered in fall 2020. A jury made up of representatives of the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership, the design world, and the Ville de Montréal will select the winning concept in fall 2019.
The future Esplanade Clark is situated in the Quartier des spectacles, west of Clark, between Sainte-Catherine and de Montigny. The site hosts a multifunctional pavilion, and an outdoor refrigerated skating rink in winter that will be converted into a vast, friendly, and lively urban patio in summer that can host activities and concerts. This is the last phase of the major project of the Quartier des spectacles, the Place des Arts hub.
