An international ideas competition has been launched for the design of the Montreal gateway corridor

Gateway corridor competition

The 17km gateway corridor links Montreal-Trudeau International Airport (YUL) to the downtown area (MTL), along Autoroute 20. The competition, entitled YUL – MTL: Moving Landscapes, looks to create an expressive gateway that highlight’s Montreal’s identity as a UNESCO City of Design.

Proposals should revolve around three areas: a landscape project for the metropolitan area; a scenographic composition of the corridor experiences; and a collaborative approach to sustainable development.

The competition is anonymous, free and open to all planning and design professionals. Entries will be evaluated by a prestigious panel, which includes Italian architect and urban planner Bernardo Secchi, and a total of $100,000 CAN will be awarded and shared between the three winners.
