Concordia University Research Chair Ideas-Be, Le Conseil Régional de l'Environnement de Montreal e Université de Montréal Research Chair on Competitions lanciano un concorso di idee indirizzato a studenti e giovani laureati in architettura, design, paesaggio e progettazione urbana.
L'obiettivo è quello di ottenere idee sostenibili e originali per rinnovare e rigenerare gli spazi pubblici intorno a quattro fermate dell'autobus nella zona di Sherbrooke Street East a Montreal.
I progetti dovranno stimolare l'uso degli spazi urbani, mettendo in evidenza il significato di natura, arte e design. Lo slogan scelto, "molto più che aspettare l'autobus", vuole spingere verso un approccio contemporaneo capace di trasformare il luogo dell'attesa in uno spazio interattivo. Il sito va ripensato al di là della pensilina che protegge i passeggeri, ma con una particolare attenzione verso un serie di oggetti e di arredi urbani organizzati con la volontà di far diventare piacevole anche l'attesa dell'autobus.
Concordia University Research Chair Ideas-Be, Le Conseil Régional de l'Environnement de Montreal and Université de Montréal Research Chair on Competitions are organizing an environmentally engaged ideas competition for reinvigorating public spaces around four bus stops in the ILEAU Territory (on Sherbrooke Street East in Montreal).
This competition is open to students and graduates of less than 5 years in the fields of architecture, design, landscape and urban design.
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.
The competition is open to teams of students and graduates of less than 5 years in the fields of architecture, design, landscape and urban design.
There are four different bus stop sites (each a different type) in this ideas competition. Teams can propose only one submission per bus stop type (described below) and therefore teams can propose up to a maximum of four idea submissions.
