The Quartier des Spectacles Partnership is proud to announce the finalists in the 2014-15 Luminothérapie competition, an annual event that creates a fun winter experience for Quartier des Spectacles visitors and stimulates Montreal-based creativity in the fields of innovative urban installations and architectural video projections.


For the component aimed at Highlighting and enlivening Place des Festivals, designers were asked to form multidisciplinary teams to design an installation that will create a wintertime island of activity at every hour of the day and night. Five finalists were selected from 45 teams that submitted proposals:

In this first phase, finalists were selected based on anonymous proposals, in order to ensure transparency and openness to new talents. In the second phase, finalists will give a presentation to the relevant jury. 


Winners will be announced in early October. The works selected will be presented during the fifth annual Luminothérapie event, from December 10, 2014 to February 1, 2015. The video projections will be shown on building façades at nine sites in the Quartier equipped with permanent video projectors: next to St-Laurent metro station (interactive work); Grande Bibliothèque (Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec), UQAM’s Centre de design, Cégep du Vieux Montréal, Place de la Paix (Hôtel Zéro 1), Théâtre Maisonneuve, UQAM’s Pavillon Président–Kennedy, the UQAM bell tower and Loft des arts (to be confirmed).


In 2013-14, the competition led to the Entre les rangs installation by Kanva, presented in Place des Festivals, and the Trouve Bob video projection series by Champagne Club Sandwich, presented on seven building façades in Quartier des Spectacles. More information (press kit)
