Olympic Park Stadium Roof

The Olympic Park is proud to announce the launch of an international Olympic Park Stadium Roof competition to creatively reuse and add value to all materials and structural components from the Montreal Olympic Stadium roof’s dismantling, set to start in summer 2024.

Design and architecture professionals and students worldwide are invited to propose creative and innovative solutions to generate new life for the roof’s components, including the symbolic cables supporting the present dome, the inner and outer membranes, as well as the fittings that support the structure.

The proposals sought must aim at resilience and adaptation to climate change. Consequently, proposals need to target specific outcomes that have the potential to improve residents’ living conditions upon deployment by addressing neighbourhood issues. The Quebec population will then be asked to vote for their favourite among the eight ideas selected by a jury of recognized experts.

For example, proposals intended for, but not limited to, the following are expected:

  • to strengthen the social and community fabric;
  • to create cool zones;
  • to develop all-season socializing spaces;
  • to promote soft and active mobility;
  • to encourage urban agriculture;
  • to establish contact with the surrounding neighborhoods;
  • to foster a connection between residents and the river.

To ensure the success of this reuse effort, certain factors must be considered. The expected proposals must demonstrate that they constitute a genuine ecological benefit, and must clearly be part of a circular economy approach through their contribution to the environment and the local community. They must be structured, have an impact in the neighborhoods surrounding the Stadium, meet the existing needs of the population, and also consider the vulnerability of the territory.

Eligibility:

The competition is open to the international community and aims to gather optimal suggestions for environmental, economic, and societal improvements.

Awards:

  • A maximum of four winners in the professional category and four winners in the student category will be selected by the jury.
  • Each professional winner will receive a prize of fifteen thousand Canadian dollars ($15,000 CAD), while each student will receive five thousand Canadian dollars ($5,000 CAD).

Award Categories:

  • Award for full reuse of materials.
  • Award in innovation, processes, and environmental impact.
  • Award for space design.
  • Award for product development.

A People’s Choice Award mention is foreseen to promote the winning entries.
