Grand reopening of Esplanade of Place des Arts

Esplanade Place des Arts

The grand reopening of the water basins and fountains at the Esplanade of Place des Arts took place today. The space imagined by Provencher_Roy has been enlarged and renovated, in order to return to its vocation as a public space. As major renovation work was necessary, Place des Arts’ administration seized the opportunity to completely overhaul the Esplanade, a site now at the very heart of the city’s festivals and artistic happenings—a use well beyond its original vocation.
