in situ + DMA Consortium Wins Architecture Competition to Redesign BAnQ Saint-Sulpice

After a province-wide selection process that began in January 2017, the jury of the architectural design competition to restore and redesign the Saint-Sulpice Library is pleased to announce that the in situ + DMA consortium has been retained. The winning project will create a unique, high-tech learning space that will be open to all and will highlight the building’s heritage value. 

“The Ministry of Culture and Communication and I are very pleased that in situ + DMA has been chosen. Their bold and original design will make BAnQ Saint-Sulpice a place that seamlessly combines the old and the new. The competition's outcome has made me realize that this truly is an inclusive, creative space where anyone can develop new ideas and projects,” said Geneviève Pichet, Acting CEO of Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ).

In January 2016, as part of the Agreement on the Cultural Development of Montreal, the Québec Ministry of Culture and Communications and the City of Montréal asked BAnQ to revitalize the Saint-Sulpice library.
