Description
The Chair in Landscape and Environmental Design at University of Montreal (CPEUM) is pleased to officially launch an international ideas competition in urban design for the gateway corridor linking Montreal-Trudeau International Airport (YUL) to its downtown area (MTL) along Autoroute 20. The competition, entitled YUL_MTL: Moving Landscapes, aims to reinvent the landscapes that highlight Montreal’s international gateway corridor.
The 17 km gateway corridor, which is mostly made up of transport infrastructures and brownfields, is witnessing a large number of development infrastructural projects, thus offering considerable urban innovation potential.
The proposals should revolve along three work streams:
- An evolving and emblematic landscape project for the metropolitan area
- A scenographic composition of the corridor experiences
- A collaborative approach to sustainable urban development
