Cana­dian ar­chi­tec­tural prac­tice Lemay has won an in­ter­na­tional land­scape ar­chi­tec­ture com­pe­ti­tion to de­sign a new pub­lic square for Mon­treal. Lemay’s de­sign for Place des Mon­tréalaises, which will hon­our 21 of the city’s women whose lives span its 375-year his­tory, will fea­ture a flower-lined in­clined plane that will cul­mi­nate in a flow­ery meadow. The meadow will be planted with 21 dif­fer­ent plants that will flower in se­quence. The de­sign will also in­clude an ur­ban for­est planted around the nearby Champ-de-Mars métro sta­tion.
