Alphabet turns Montreal’s public space into an urban living room by inviting dwellers to playfully engage with giant typographic foam furniture, and by extension, language, and pluriversality.
Develop strategies to acknowledge and endorse cultural diversity in public space. Create tools to empower urban dwellers to appropriate public space in the city they migrated to. As such, recreate the elements presents on the street as a world of their own.
Alphabet was developed with Leah Bell, Aurore Paluel-Marmont, Hannah McDonald, and Marie El-Nawar. The team came together in personal volition. My contribution centered on the conceptual narrative for the project in pair with the design proposition.
Alphabet was developed and completed in a week. It won the first prize of the Canadian Center of Architecture’s Interuniversity Charrette.
