JOAN ROIG INVITED TO THE CITY COUNCIL OF MONTREAL FOR THE REDEFINITION OF THE MCGILL COLLEGE AVENUE IN MONTREAL
The center of Montreal is being transformed and, in this context, the City of Montreal is reconsidering its essence, the prestigious McGill College Avenue.
NewCities, an international non-profit organization dedicated to shaping a better urban future, has been commissioned by the City of Montreal to coordinate part of this exercise.
Forty local and international experts, including Joan Roig, are invited to participate in these two days of co-creation to design, develop and propose new posts for the avenue. Citizens are invited the next day to work with the group and contribute their vision.
The recommendations that will emerge as a result of the process will be integrated into a design program that will be prepared in the coming months. The program will guide an international design competition that will take place in mid-2019.
