Creating walkable, urban, human-centered neighborhoods in the Granary District.
Claude Cormier + Associates, a Landscape Architecture + Urban Design firm, designed this street installation in Montreal Canada. The idea was to transform a street primarily used for cars into a pedestrian only passage.
Temporary Overlay Markers (the same markers used to define temporary lanes on highways) are arranged in a regular grid to mimic a carpet of daisy flowers. The installation is a temporary attraction designed to bring attention to the transformation and purpose of the street.
Imagine if streets in the Granary District could be temporarily transformed (maybe part of Gallery Stroll) into installations. People would come to engage with the street and the district in other ways besides in their vehicles. These installations would be promotional tools for the designers and for the area.
