IMAGO is the winning entry of the City of Montreal’s two-phase competition entitled ‘Vivre le chantier Sainte-Cath!’. St. Catherine Street, an important commercial artery in downtown Montreal is undergoing a four-year infrastructure improvement plan along several blocks, including underground infrastructure upgrades, incorporation of new public transit systems and increasing pedestrian sidewalk area and access. The project seeks to ameliorate the streetscape’s overall appeal, improve its functioning and promote economic growth over the long term. During the construction different segments of the street will be closed to car traffic, however pedestrian traffic and access to all stores will remain functioning. It is inevitable that this period of transformation will have an impact on people’s daily routine and the operation of the city.

A stacked rectilinear form, Bass Street Residence uses a series of subtly angled walls in opposing directions so the building composition creates a slight sense of tension between the property’s two key outlooks.

Every single year, Madrid council asks some of the most important designers, architects or courtiers to make designs for Madrid’s streets. Teresa Sapey was asked to conceive Serrano Street’s Christmas lighting.
Placed in one of the most luxurious neighbourhoods in Madrid, Serrano Street is well known for the high fashion designer’s shops. It seemed to be a very difficult task, but Teresa thought this was a very good chance to lighten up the street using very colourful and geometric designs. Her aim was to the grey and cold Serrano into a warm place, filled with colour.

This project looks at what makes Boise unique and builds upon those elements to create a cultural district that promotes Boise as a place. The Boise 8th Street Cultural District design embraces sustainability as a form generator. Green roofs, downtown agriculture, solar access, and responsible water use combined to form the project. The district’s highest priority is to be of and for Boise, because there is nothing more sustainable than a beautiful, lively, city where people will want to walk, bike, create, and live.
