The design studio Daily tous les jours, in collaboration with architects Dan Hanganu and Michel Dallaire and the Pointe-à-Callière team, received top honours at the 12th edition of the prestigious Grands prix du design. The team took home an award in the Exhibition category for Pointe-à-Callière’s new permanent exhibition Where Montréal Began. Inaugurated as part of the 375th anniversary of Montréal, this exhibition uncovers the history of the city’s foundation through its archaeological remains.

The jury highlighted “the design execution, in perfect symbiosis with the historic space and as a timeless showcase of Montreal’s founding historical remains.” The jury also noted that the glass floor overlooking the remnants of the Fort Ville-Marie, which were found during various archaeological excavations conducted by the Museum, “served the purpose with elegance.”
