The Henri-Bourassa-Pie-IX Intersection rewarded a “Les Arts et la Ville” Design Award

Blog June 10, 2016

The Henri-Bourassa-Pie-IX Intersection was rewarded at the annual Les Arts et la Ville Award ceremony.

These awards aim to showcase, within the public space, the cultural engagement of municipalities, cities and cultural agencies who work within our communities. The objective of this project was to transform this area into a secure and welcoming city gateway portraying the city’s values and identity. From its 19 metre height, the BGL work of art “La vélocité des lieux” transforms the City of Montreal’s northern entrance into an identity landmark. The jury salutes the requalification of this public space through art as well as its significant and sustainable character.
Congratulations to the entire team! IMG_6576 IMG_6215
