CONCORDIA UNIVERSITY RESEARCH CHAIR IDEAS-BE + LE CONSEIL RÉGIONAL DE L’ENVIRONNEMENT DE MONTREAL + UNIVERSITÉ DE MONTRÉAL RESEARCH CHAIR ON COMPETITIONS are organizing an environmentally engaged ideas competition for reinvigorating public spaces around bus stops. This competition is open to students and graduates of less than 5 years in the fields of architecture, design, landscape and urban design.
This ideas competition seeks both:
(a) designs that are environmentally engaging; and
(b) a series of principles that could be adopted for future implementation in collaboration with the City of Montreal, the STM and private landowners.
This competition seeks ideas and projects stimulate appreciation of urban spaces by highlighting the significance of nature, art, and design. The chosen slogan, “MORE THAN WAITING FOR THE BUS” invites designers to reflect on contemporary approaches that can help invigorate these spaces in interactive, poetic, critical and meaningful ways: from solely utilitarian to more multi-purposed spaces surrounding bus stops.
Competitors must be aware that this is not a competition for redesigning a bus shelter, but rather an opportunity to rethink the site surrounding the bus stops. The intention is to make waiting for the bus enjoyable in a variety of ways and to encourage citizens to use the bus rather than their car, all year long, including hot summer days and long cold winter months. Furthermore, as opposed to current practices which consider bus stops as universally dropped objects onto urban spaces, the organizers seek to constitute a Best Practice Guide that will include a synthesis of principles submitted by each team of competitors.
