The Saucier + Perrotte Architectes and Hughes Condon Marler Architects with SNC Lavalin team won the architecture competition for the future sports complex in Saint-Laurent, a former city on the island of Montreal in southwestern Quebec, Canada. The winning team’s proposal distinguished itself from the others by the quality of its architectural gesture, the simplicity of the concept, the creation of a distinctively urban branding image and wayfinding strategy, its adherence to the surface areas of the facilities, the effectiveness of its sustainable development strategies and its potential for change.
