A place of openness and exchange
To build a new library is to give to one’s community, to make a gesture of openness, of exchange, of culture and of urbanity. Situated in the multi-ethnic borough of Saint-Laurent on a busy urban boulevard, the library is one of a series of public structures with a lush woodland park running behind them. Founded on the prioritization of the user’s perception, the library and its landscape offer a contemporary place of varied experiences.

MIDDLE-GROUND-BNIM-SOUTHKOREA-1

The Seunsangga Complex is a series of large, contextually awkward buildings that divide a historical industrial area in half. Being over one kilometer long, the complex once served as a break in the urban fabric meant to prevent the spread of fire and disease. At this moment, the competition seeks to refit the complex into the city’s increasingly urbanizing context. The complex’s modernist buildings are a monolithic urban gesture through the City.
