In late March 2019, students from across Montréal participated in an interuniversity urban design charrette exploring options for the 'Road over the Mountain' (Chemin de la montagne) on Mont-Royal. This was made possible through a partnership with Les Amis de la Montagne and the Faculty-wide initiative Enhancing Learning and Teaching in Engineering. Coordinated by Prof. Nik Luka and delivered with the support of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research on Montreal (CIRM), the charrette is also part of a detailed case study on 'Safe Passage'--an interdisciplinary research project funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (PI: Prof. N.-M. Lister).
The five submissions can be seen here. An exhibition of the panels took place in the spring of 2019 at McGill's Humanities and Social Sciences Library and at the Smith House on Mont-Royal. The student teams responded to the charrette mandate and background studies posted here.
