The Groupe Cardinal Hardy and Claude Cormier Associates look to break the mould and serve on a movement of simplicity, solidity and respond to the immediate context. The movement of the pedestrians, the materials, the steps of the visitors who scramble throughout the city – these are the building blocks for their design of Place d’Youville in Montréal.
