" 3 successful competitions (-) 2 built (=) 1 potential Pritzker Prize "
by , , published
In 2014, after a long process, in 3 competitions organized in parallel by the Montreal Botanical Garden museum institution Space for Life, 3 projects were selected in coincidence with the celebrations of the 375th anniversary of Montreal. The implementation of two of them did not begin until 2018 with the temporary closure of the Biodôme, and then with that of the insectarium in 2019. The Biodome reopened to visitors in 2020 and the insectarium is scheduled to be completed in June 2021. The third was to reinvent the rose garden set in the Glass Pavilion of the Botanical Garden. The project has already been forgotten, including by the media. It is now to be regretted, as it was designed by Lacaton and Vassal, valiant winners of the Pritzker Prize in 2021. [...] more

Bibliothèque de Drummondville
Quebec, Drummondville, 2014
To note the recurrence of this expectation in competition programs for public buildings, it is time to open the debate. In 2014, the team Chevalier Morales and DMA architects won the jury over after arguing the search for a unique, iconic, and emblematic architecture, but especially the search for a "third place". Through this equivocal concept, the Drummondville library competition questions the need for a new definition of the contemporary library itself. [...] more

Waterfront ReConnect Design Competition
Canada
Registration for the information session : July 27th, 2021 Submission Deadline : August 13th, 2021
In collaboration with the City of Toronto, the Waterfront Business Improvement Area, and the Toronto Downtown West Business Improvement Area, The Bentway is seeking Expression of Interest (EOI) submissions from professional artists and/or designers interested in participating in The Waterfront ReConnect Design Competition. Designed for a car-centric era, Toronto's Gardiner Expressway has long served as a street-level barrier between the City's core and a blossoming waterfront. As the city recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are asking what if this obstacle could be reimagined as a vital point of connection? This presents an exciting opportunity to build upon the larger waterfront revitalization effort and Gardiner rehabilitation project. Furthermore, it is an opportunity to develop an inclusive process, involving multiple public and private stakeholders, and demonstrate the potential of the Under Gardiner to become an integral part of the larger public realm.

Archstorming, in collaboration with the NGO Let's Build my School are launching a competition in Marsassoum, Senegal, to build a new elementary school. A temporary school made of tin and bamboo is already on the site, but often collapses during the rainy season. The proposal should not require construction skills, should use sustainable, local and recycled materials, and above all should be easily replicable so that the inhabitants can draw inspiration from it to build their houses.
