The finalists in the Montréal Space for Life architecture competition have been announced. After deliberating on April 3 and 4, the jury announced its decision to the city of Montréal Executive Committee.
During this first stage, the participants had to present their vision for one or more of the three projects. Many Quebec firms allied with partners from abroad and other Canadian provinces. Eight teams were chosen to take part in the next stage in the competition and to submit more detailed concepts for one or more of the projects.
Of the 59 proposals received, 22 were for the Insectarium Metamorphosis, 11 for the Biodôme Renewal and 27 for the Glass Pavilion. Four finalist teams were chosen for each project.
