Developers Put On A Show in Montreal

An exhibit of architectural plans from developers working in Montreal shows possible futures for the city, ranging from striking domes to mixed-use commercial and residential complexes.

The exhibition has become a tradition in Montreal, showcasing soon-to-be buildings and some that are still a gleam in a developer's eye.

Dinu Bumbaru, an architect with the conservation group Heritage Montreal, says in The Gazette:"The great value of this kind of event is it sheds light on many of the rumours or bits of information that appear in obscure vocabulary in public notices about zoning – have you ever tried to read these things? They're not made for people to understand. So at least an open event connects the public to visuals, so people can appreciate what's going on."
