A house open to the world
The proposed concept was that of a Maison open to the citizens and the world, offering generous public spaces and taking full advantage of its strategic location, framed by René-Lévesque boulevard, Papineau avenue and Viger avenue. The building, deliberately designed on all its faces, is organized in two volumes around a new welcoming public square, the Square Radio-Canada.
The proposition presents a meeting place that encourages exchanges and creation, while offering a space for information, learning and cultural enrichment. The dynamic architectural expression reflects the variety of the Maison Radio-Canada’s functions: a place for work, broadcasting and discovery as well as a place to meet and hold events.
