Lemay remporte les honneurs au concours international
«Reimagine A New York City Icon»

New York, États-Unis

Lemay

Montréal, Canada, 2016-03-07 -

Lemay remporte les honneurs au concours de design international ouvert et anonyme « Reimagine A New York City Icon », organisé par la revue américaine Metals in Construction et le Ornamental Metal Institute of New York. Inspiré du « American Climate Action Plan » et du « Architecture 2030 Challenge », la compétition visait à réimaginer le 200 Park Avenue (anciennement l’édifice Pan Am, devenu l’édifice MetLife). Construit il y a plus d’un demi-siècle, l'édifice, alors considéré comme le plus grand édifice corporatif au monde, est la dernière création du célèbre architecte moderniste Walter Gropius. 


La proposition de Lemay, intitulée « Farm Follows Fiction », s’est distinguée parmi les 109 candidatures soumises. Elle se partage les honneurs avec cinq autres lauréats dont d’autres firmes reconnues comme FXFOWLE, SHoP et AECOM. Fruit d’un effort collectif mené par le LemayLAB et impliquant les talents multidisciplinaires des équipes Escobar Design et Développement durable de Lemay en collaboration avec  Ecosystem et Sefaira — deux firmes spécialisées en performance énergétique —, le concept visait à repositionner l’icône architecturale new-yorkaise tout en réduisant drastiquement sa consommation énergétique en visant une empreinte écologique nette zéro. Employant un style graphique audacieux emprunté à la bande dessinée, la proposition raconte comment l’édifice MetLife devient une ressource pour la collectivité en se transformant en la plus haute ferme au monde. Le concept innove également en proposant que le nouvel édifice encourage activement un mode de vie sain, incarnant de façon éloquente la mission de la compagnie d’assurance.


Lors du dévoilement des lauréats lundi dernier, le jury a tenu à souligner que la proposition de Lemay était « un projet [innovateur et visionnaire] incarnant les bâtiments du futur » et un projet modèle permettant d’atteindre les ambitieux objectifs de l’initiative Architecture 2030 Challenge.


Le jury de cette compétition était composé d’experts reconnus internationalement en design durable, et ce, dans diverses sphères de l’architecture et de l’ingénierie : Ben Tranel, AIA, PA LEED, de Gensler; Areta Pawlynsky, AIA, d’Heintges ; Billie Faircloth, AIA, PA LEED BD+C, de Kieran Timberlake ; Fiona Cousins, PE, PA LEED BD+C, d’Arup ; Sameer Kumar, AIA, PA LEED, de SHoP et Hauke Jungjohann de chez Thornton Tomasetti.
