Quartier des spectacles | Entertainment District°

location: Montreal, Canada

client: Quartier des spectacles Partnership, SHDM & City of Montreal

° Project designed & directed as Senior Partner of Lauzon Pelland (NOMADE)

The Challenge

Materialize into a masterplan the vision of the 21 founding partners of the then-nascent business district association in order to revitalize the 83-hectare Eastern downtown core, provide space for its exterior events such as the International Jazz Festival, increase attendance to the sector’s 23 live performance venues and consolidate the grass-roots cultural ecosystem of the neighborhood.

The Response

An exercise in collective decision-making and open-source design, this first masterplan is an example of additive thinking and interests management, managing to bring elegance and simplicity to a complex ecosystem, while coalescing the ideas of multiple stakeholders into a bold, colorful and inspiring vision masterplan that addresses real estate, economic development, design, investment, events, uses, lighting, branding, heritage, and signage - effectively launching this major Montreal project into the international cultural spotlight.
