The Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (MAC) Renewal Project has reached a new milestone with the revealing of the finalists of round one of the architectural competition. The jury has narrowed it down to four architect groups who will advance to round two of the competition.
Here are the four finalists:
Atelier Big City + FSA Architecture
DHA + NFOE Architects Consortium
Saucier + Perrotte / GLCRM Architects Consortium
Provencher Roy + Associés Architects
For the second round of the selection process, the finalists will make their presentations and submit their projects to the jury, which is assisted by a technical committee. Once the projects have been reviewed, the jury will announce the winning firm in December 2017 to the developer. The contract should therefore begin in January 2018.
The current time line for the project has work starting in June 2019 and ending in 2021.
