Scope and Content

Le dossier documente la soumission pour le concours international de la Place Jacques-Cartier, à Montreal, Québec, tenu pendant l'été 1990. Jacques Rousseau s'est mérité le premier rang ex-aequo.

Le dossier contient des dessins, des documents textuels, des reprographies et des photographies.

Objectifs du concours: "The competition objectives and evaluation criteria in the Place Jacques-Cartier competition neither separated programmatic issues from specific architectural ones nor did they establish a hierarchy for these issues. The competitors were asked to generate general attitudes towards development in the area at the same time as they were asked to design street furniture, lighting, and decorative ironwork (mentioned at least 8 times in the competition document.)"

Gary Gilbert, "Ceci n'est pas un concours", Arcade, juin-juillet 1991, vol. 11, nº 1, p. 12.

Description du projet par l'architecte: "Alors que partout les signes et les messages se sont multipliés et superposés, que la parole est devenue inintelligible et le sens dilué, le silence apparaît comme le seuil d'appréciation d'une mémoire en devenir. Le projet que nos déposons cherche à comprendre la complexité contemporaine qui touche le site mais se refuse à la surcharge. Aussi cherche-t-il à accueillir une mémoire construire de silences mais soutient que le silence n'est pas se taire."

Jacques Rousseau, ARQ: Architecture-Québec, nº 59, février 1991, p. 17.
