  • Capturing Montreal's Condoscape - Spacing Montreal
    outraged by the banality of condo design Condo ads promising prestige sophistication comfort and urbanity seem dissonant with the re parcelling of old triplexes and industrial buildings into compact corner cutting designs And on a daily basis our experience of condos is often marked by disruptive construction sites that breed indignant graffiti in our neighbourhoods Spacing Montreal is teaming up with Groupe conseil Avenue 8 to delve into the meaning of condominiums in Montreal both concrete and imagined C condo is part of the Canadian Centre for Architecture s ABC MTL event Join us on Saturday November 17th for a treasure hunt through Montreal s central and South Western neighbourhoods to explore Montreal s condoscape both typical and surprising This activity will be followed by a fishbowl discussion at the CCA The event takes place from 1pm 4 30 pm More info on the CCA s website C condo In preparation for the event we invite readers to share photos or comments that help capture the many dimensions and contradictions that mark Montreal s contemporary condoscape Submit photos to alanahheffez spacing ca or tag them c condo on flickr or share your thoughts in the comments section below Subscribe to Mag Share Post Tweet Post Buy Merch andise Tweet More posts by Alanah Heffez 2 comments Neither the author nor Spacing necessarily agrees with posted comments Spacing reserves the right to edit or delete comments entirely See our Comment Policy Morgan 3 years ago Does this start at the CCA Alanah Heffez 3 years ago yes it did sorry I wasn t able to comment back earlier Hope you made it Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Name Email Website Comment Search Advertisement Spacing Magazine fall 2015 Order issue Subscribe

  • Cinq chantiers, cinq objectifs: l'hippodrome de Montréal - Spacing Montreal
    montréalais Dans le cadre de cette exposition Spacing Montréal présentera 5 photos tirées de l exposition chacune accompagnée des commentaires du photographe Photo et texte par Alexandre Cv C est au cœur d un des plus grands scandales de corruption de son histoire que Montréal a annoncé le développement d une ville dans une ville sur le site de l hippodrome de Montréal Un site rare situé en plein centre de l ile et possédant un potentiel immense Esthétiquement il s agit d un champ de gravier dans l emprise de la piste de course ponctué de deux groupes de bâtiments abandonnés le groupe des estrades de l accueil de l administration et des salons de pari et plus en retrait le groupe des écuries Ma démarche photographique s articule autour de la ruine contemporaine Il était donc naturel pour moi de choisir ce site J ai choisi d illustrer ces structures en mettant l accent sur le panneau indicateur qui fait face aux estrades point névralgique des courses L idée inhérente à ce choix photographique est de proposer une considération esthétique des paysages en transition quelle place y aura t il pour ces formes du divertissement qui subiront une tabula rasa Car à voir le déplorable Power center déjà construit sur le site le pari semble risqué Quelle est la valeur de ces ruines contemporaines dans notre conception évolutive du paysage urbain La question mérite d être posée car à mon sens ces paysages de l attente ne doivent pas uniquement servir un dessein photographique Subscribe to Mag Share Post Tweet Post Buy Merch andise Tweet More posts by Spacing Neither the author nor Spacing necessarily agrees with posted comments Spacing reserves the right to edit or delete comments entirely See our Comment Policy Leave a Reply Cancel reply

  • Montreal's election prospects - Spacing Montreal
    existence that attempt to produce seat projections using polls and previous elections as a baseline Most of these sites formulas have proven to be largely accurate provided the poll numbers plugged in are reliable at predicting aggregate seat outcomes One of the most cited is ThreeHundredEight com a website run by Éric Grenier According to his projections the outcomes on the island will be similar to previous elections Liberal strongholds in the west and north PQ strongholds in the east with QS advancing on the PQ in certain central districts So unless there is a major change in public opinion towards the end of the campaign it seems that there will be no paradigm shift in the works ThreeHundredEight com s projections on August 22nd That said the island of Montreal will still probably see some more interesting races than has been the case for some time Most important is the presence of QS According to Éric Grenier they ll have difficulty electing more than their two spokespersons Amir Khadir and Françoise David as long as they aren t able to break the 10 mark nationally While they re having trouble getting there they could still be a factor in a few key central ridings Anecdotally part of their difficulty in gaining traction in the polls is likely due to some of their soft supporters drifting back to the PQ out of a desire to vote strategically to ensure a defeat for the Liberals That said QS is making inroads in certain orange line central neighbourhoods and if they run a good campaign on the ground and manage to convince voters that they can win locally there could be surprises And Françoise David s widely appreciated performance at Sunday s debate could also boost the party s chances of winning a third seat And second the CAQ finally seems to be making inroads amongst non francophones with a recent poll putting them at 20 amongst this demographic in which the PLQ has for decades had a total lock hold The Liberals are weaker than ever and many Anglos seems to be considering other options for the first time in a while But short of a total collapse in their vote this will generally just mean reduced liberal majorities in the west end Short of a major shift at the end of the campaign Montreal won t end up with any CAQ MNAs But if a significant part of the Liberal base abandons the party and votes for the CAQ or the Greens or the new centrist federalist party the Quebec Citizens Union or abstains it could throw a few normally safe liberal seats into play And be the final nail in the coffin of the PLQ s hopes for reelection However as this campaign develops it seems more likely than not that it will be won where most elections in recent history are won in the off island suburbs and the Quebec City region Unfortunately for Montrealers this is something

  • The Dinghy is Legit - Spacing Montreal
    non motorized boat Five dollars I had to provide my name and address but no ID and had to fill in a line for boat identification the inflatable dinghy came with unique number printed on it by the manufacturer Also park rules specify that you must have life jackets Fifteen minutes later with a federal stamp of approval we were in the water We got inspected by another Parks Canada employee when we portaged around the Saint Gabriel s lock but as soon as she saw the light blue beaver sticker she gave us a thumbs up The 4 km paddle to the show was definitely slower than walking note to interested parties dinghy sizing is kind of like tent sizing when they say it s a 3 person boat they clearly intend those 3 people to be sitting on top of each other We also couldn t resist docking at Atwater market to pick up some snacks and beers But the most delicious part of the trip was the sense that a whole new world had opened up to us right in the middle of the city We got a brand new view of the life along the canal from Pop Montréal s Pier party and a neighbourhood BBQ in Pointe Saint Charles to the hundreds of tiny fish that began leaping out of the water all around us at sunset And of course no set of wheels can make quite the same splash as pulling up at a show in your legit rubber boat Subscribe to Mag Share Post Tweet Post Buy Merch andise Related Posts Rethinking Brossard s Panama Hub Tweet More posts by Alanah Heffez 7 comments Neither the author nor Spacing necessarily agrees with posted comments Spacing reserves the right to edit or delete comments
