Cultural Center in Verdun competition finalist proposal

Located in a large forested park along the edge of the St-Lawrence River, the project offers the City of Verdun a center dedicated to the performing arts. The design takes advantage of the bucolic character of the surroundings by creating an architectural work whose unique presence is felt strongly throughout the landscape.

The strategy unites the disparate elements of the program by covering them with a unique material that reinforces the monumental character of the building. The ephemeral nature of the design emphasizes the pavilion aesthetics of the ensemble while its overall size relates to the grand scale of the extraordinary site.
