PHI Contemporary | International Architecture Competition

Data końca rejestracji: 14/11/2021
Termin składania prac: 07/04/2022
Miasto: Montreal
Kraj: Kanada

PHI is pleased to announce the launch of an international architectural competition for the design of PHI Contemporary - a cultural institution in Montreal, dedicated to exploring the contemporary through public engagement with art and culture. 

Founded by cultural protagonist, Phoebe Greenberg, in 2007, PHI is an ever-evolving cultural infrastructure dedicated to supporting art and artists probing key agendas of our times, and the mutual - and radical - accessibility between them and the public.

As a future repository for PHI’s legacy, PHI Contemporary will be a new and permanent space to consolidate, extend, and intersect PHI’s cultural offer, its communities, and the public life of the city.

Located in Old Montreal, and built upon a site rife with history - comprising an assemblage of four historical buildings and an adjacent vacant lot - PHI Contemporary will consolidate the public cultural offer currently housed within PHI Foundation and PHI Centre. The 6,900 m² / 74,000 ft² project will house exhibition spaces, a network of new media galleries, mediation, research and studio spaces, and an expansive public domain.

The projected construction budget is CAN$47,280,000, excluding taxes and inflation.
