Ph.D. student Elisabeth Bouchard and partner Eric Boucher have won first prize in the Concours d’idées en design urbain: Pôle muséal du quartier Montcalm. The urban design competition was launched in Quebec City at the end of April and the winners were announced at a press conference at the Musée National de Beaux-Arts du Québec on June 13, 2013. Open to registered architects (members of the OAQ), the program asked for a unifying signature for the Montcalm neighborhood in view of the completion of the new pavilion of the MNBAQ designed by OMA. Three prizes and an honorable mention were awarded. The first prize carried an award of $20,000.
