Since the year 2000, the City of Trois-Rivières (Three Rivers), Quebec, Canada, is developing a plan to urbanize a site formerly occupied by a paper mill on the banks of the Saint-Laurent and Saint-Maurice rivers. As the development’s masterpiece, the city proposes to build a 10,000-seat outdoor amphitheatre. The site’s exceptional location between the downtown area and the water calls for a landmark building.
