Montreal has been designated as a UNESCO City of Design. The Design Montreal bureau, in partnership with the design community, is launching the first edition of Design Montreal Open House day. This event will familiarize the general public with Montreal’s design and architecture communities, and showcase their richness, diversity and talent.
On Saturday, May 5, from noon to 5 p.m., Montreal design firms that have been recognized in the past two years in interior, industrial or graphic design, architecture, landscape architecture and urban design will open their doors to exhibit the work that won them these prestigious awards. The designers who received awards for Montreal projects, which visitors can tour (e.g. buildings, squares, parks, streets and interiors) or view (e.g. furniture, signs, etc.) will be on hand to discuss their achievements and answer visitors’ questions. You can find more details in a PDF brochure on Design Montreal Open House.
