Join us for the Legado Public Art Competition Final Jury Presentations! Three teams of Concordia students present their final proposals for a public art installation for Legado, an innovative mixed-use development in Griffintown by Gestion Immobilière Quo Vadis. Guided by sustainable socio-economic, cultural and environmental principles and a Net-Zero Energy strategy, Legado is a game-changing model for urban development.
Since May of 2017, students have been exploring placemaking on the Legado site through public art, independently and as part of DART498 Urban Futures: Developing Conscientious Competition Proposals (Summer 2017) led by Mouna Andraos and Melissa Mongiat of Daily tous les jours design studio. The competition goal is to envision how to gather and engage the diverse community of Griffintown around its shared history of innovation, and highlight the importance of creativity, sustainability and resiliency in urban development projects.
The three competition finalists were chosen in Fall 2017 to refine their proposals and will now compete for the chance to realize their work on the Legado site. The winning team will also receive the inaugural award of Concordia’s Quo Vadis Social Innovation Prize.
A roundtable discussion entitled “Public art as a Strategy for Sustainable Development” will follow the presentations, with Natalie Voland of GI Quo Vadis and invited jury members, moderated by Shauna Janssen, Director, Institute for Urban Futures.
Presented with the generous support of the Faculty of Fine Arts and the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture (CISSC).
