Reclaiming and Enhancing the St. Lawrence River Shoreline
International, multidisciplinary ideas competition for land use planning – Enhancing the St. Lawrence River Shoreline in Québec City – Phase 4
This international ideas competition aims to foster creativity. Winning concepts will be selected from among the innovative proposals submitted by the multidisciplinary teams formed for the competition.
Purpose of the competition
The CCNQ is organizing an international ideas competition with the aim of imagining the fullest potential of Littoral Est: Reclaiming and Enhancing the St. Lawrence River Shoreline in Québec City – Phase 4 project, which extends over 8 km between the D’Estimauville area and Parc de la Chute-Montmorency.
The ultimate goal is to uncover the development potential of the target area, generate exciting ideas and concepts, and influence the strategies and decisions of the stakeholders who will bring those ideas and concepts to life. The competition will also shed light on current issues and speculate on future ones, with four main focus areas:
- Enhancing the shoreline and making it more accessible,
- Connecting the surrounding neighbourhoods to the river,
- Assessing the current layout of the road infrastructure,
- Preserving and enhancing natural spaces.
This open, single-step competition is both multidisciplinary and international. It is aimed at landscape architects, urban designers, architects, urban planners, and other environmental design professionals capable of proposing ambitious yet realistic ideas that can help transform and preserve the area as well as reclaim the shoreline and its natural and built surroundings.
