Brief: Micro-Institution for the Artist, Student, and Community
Faculty: Saucier + Perrotte Architectes (website): Gilles Saucier
2011

 

The micro-institution is designed as a public conduit, integrated within the fine-grained urban fabric of Montreal, in which art culture can be easily exposed to the community. This is a place that attempts to dissolve barriers and encourage interaction between public and private spaces. The objective is to bring about contact between visitors, students, and artists. The micro-institution allows for spatial flexibility to respond to the changing patterns of the art culture as well as the lifestyle of the occupants.
