08 MON­TREAL ON THE RIGHT TRACK

Identity - - ANTENNAE -

Le­may, Perkins+Will and Bis­son Fortin are team­ing up to de­sign an in­te­grated, sus­tain­able sys­tem of light-rail train sta­tions for a 67-kilo­me­tre net­work be­ing planned for the Greater Mon­treal area. Each sta­tion will share mod­u­lar pre­fab­ri­cated com­po­nents to en­sure ef­fi­cient and en­vi­ron­men­tally sus­tain­able con­struc­tion, with de­signs in­cor­po­rat­ing am­ple glaz­ing to max­imise day­light, en­hance se­cu­rity and fa­cil­i­tate way-find­ing. The his­toric im­por­tance of Que­bec’s tim­ber in­dus­try will be cel­e­brated with the use of wood in every sta­tion’s ceil­ing, and each lo­cal area will be­come home to sus­tain­able, bio­di­verse ecosys­tems, con­nect­ing a green ur­ban con­tin­uum.
