Award from the Association of Landscape Architects of Canada AAPC
For the Lighting Master Plan of the Old-Montreal, Montreal, Canada
The lighting master plan of the Old Montreal is the first in Canada. Inaugurated in 1996, it offers a comprehensive concept of valorization of arhitectural and urban heritage. As an important visual composition, the light reveals the silhouette of the historic district, featuring the administrative city, the Place Jacques-Cartier, St. Paul Street, the Bonsecours Market, the De la Commune Street, the Place d’Armes, the Place d Youville and the Place Royale, among others. The play of contrasts, hues and atmospheres captures the emotion of the history and the value of this highly symbolic place. The lighting master plan and the architectural illuminations of several major buildings have received awards, from the Association of Landscape Architects of Canada CSLA and the Illuminating Engineering Society IES.
