A new look for the Esplanade

Place des Arts’ future Esplanade: a signature space for a great cultural metropolis

The Société de la Place des Arts has undertaken major work that will result in a complete reconfiguration of its Esplanade, transforming it into a veritable giant stage, thereby promoting its use for large-scale public events all year long.

The $34 M project will be carried out in such a way as to allow planned cultural and artistic activities to continue to take place without interruption. The project was created by the Montreal architecture firm of Provencher Roy, the recipient of numerous awards for its urban development projects in Canada and abroad.

The Esplanade has remained very busy over the years, and today requires a much-needed overhaul.

The new Esplanade will be an even more lively gathering place all year long, serving the creativity and genius of the arts and culture community that makes our city so unique.
