The Ville de Montréal recently launched a multidisciplinary design competition for a collection of playful urban furniture for esplanade Clark, in the Quartier des spectacles, downtown Montréal.
This competition is held in two major stages: the first based on anonymous proposals and a second stage (which is remunerated), in which a maximum of four finalists, selected by the jury during the first stage, will submit a service offering.
The proposed budget for the manufacture and installation of all furniture elements of the collection is CAD$600,000 before taxes. The maximum budget for the competition winner’s professional service fees is CAD$225,000, plus taxes.
The competition is national (Canada) in scope but designers from other countries can submit a proposal if they team up with a Canadian designer or have a business address in Canada at the time of the competition.
Competition deadline: October 4, 2019, before noon, Montréal time
