THE MICHAL AND RENATA HORNSTEIN PAVILION FOR PEACE HAS BEEN COMPLETED
We are pleased to announce that construction of the new Michal and Renata Hornstein Pavilion for Peace was completed on February 29. As announced in 2013, the architectural competition for the design of this addition to the Museum was won by the consortium of Atelier TAG and Jodoin Lamarre Pratte architectes. This major project is characterized by an aluminum architectural veil/screen modulating the interior light, a wooden “event staircase,” areas for relaxation and exploration suspended over Bishop Street, and large exhibition halls that will house international collections in addition to welcoming new educational and community spaces. The design concept addresses major concerns about sustainable development and the respect for natural surroundings. Planned as part of the celebrations of the 375th anniversary of the city, the official inauguration will be held on November 9, 2016.
Of particular note is that the new Pavilion for Peace was recognized with a Canadian Architect Award of Excellence in 2013 and selected among the architectural projects worth visiting in 2016 in the urban chronicle of Marc-André Carignan (Radio-Canada).
