Zaha Hadid in the frame for £35m library in Quebec

  • Comment

Zaha Hadid's office is the only uk firm shortlisted in a design competition for a major library in Montreal. The London-based practice has been picked with four others for the £35 million Grande Bibliotheque du Quebec. It will submit designs in June.

Zaha Hadid has teamed up with a practice from Quebec, Boutin Ramoisy Tremblay Architects, in a bid to beat off international competition from Paris-based Atelier Christian de Portzamparc and Patkau Architects from Vancouver. The challenge from Quebec comes from a consortium of practices featuring fabg, gdl and nomade and an alliance between two firms, Saucier + Perrotte and Menkes Shooner Dagenais. The site for the 35,000m2 building is in central Montreal. The judging panel wants an 'inventive' use of materials and a bold design.
