Scope and Content

Le dossier documente la soumission pour le concours sur invitation tenu en hiver 1987 pour des arches des "Olympic Winter Games" de 1988, à Calgary, Alberta.

Le dossier contient des dessins, des documents textuels, des photographies, une maquette et une reprographie.

Objectifs du concours: "Twenty Canadian architects have been commissioned to submit designs for a ceremonial Olympic arch that will capture the spirit of the Olympic Winter Games in Calgary. The models and accompanying drawings will be exhibited during the Olympic Arts Festival, next Jan. 23 to Feb. 28."

The Globe and Mail, 27 février 1987.

Description du projet: "It explores the theme of "Boundary" as space. It delineates the outside and the outside, skin and structure, tension and pressure. It assembles the given and the withheld, the synthesis and the enigma."

Jacques Rousseau, extrait du texte faisant partie de la soumission du projet (25-03-1987)
