Place des Arts Earns 2 Gold Certifications in Grands Prix Du Design Awards Program
We are excited to share that Place des Arts, a JV project between Moriyama Teshima Architects (MTA) and Bélanger Salach Architecture (BSA), has been award two Gold Level certifications in this year’s Grands Prix du Design competition – one in the Public Building / Cultural Building category, and the other in the Special Award / Architecture + Collaboration category!
Place des Arts has transformed a once vacant parking lot into a space providing a unified home for Regroupement des Organismes Culturels de Sudbury, whose collective voice speaks for the francophone arts culture in Greater Sudbury. Since its opening in spring of 2022, the building has noticeably increased community activity as well as tourist engagement. It welcomes those from near and far to engage with the artistic works of the members themselves in a space that fosters creativity, promotes social interaction, and acts as a civic beacon for Northern Ontario. Place des Arts is a dynamic, cultural hub providing a place to access various arts and culture programming – it is a gathering space for the community both young and old.
The submission is now open for public voting. If you wish to cast a vote in this building’s favour, please click here. Thank you for your support.
