Jade Beltran, Cindy Colombo and Raphaëlle Leclerc, master’s students in architecture at the University of Montreal’s Faculty of Planning, finished first in the Potential Architecture Study Laboratory competition with their Tricycle project. A $ 3000 scholarship was awarded on September 10th.

The Entre l’école and city competition is for students enrolled in the Master of Architecture. He invited them to design an architectural project in the Griffintown neighborhood that included a primary school, residential units and businesses. The challenge of the contest was to reflect on the places of the between-school located between the school and the city, but also between the spaces of nature and different functions.

This competition is funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. It is led by professors of the UdeM School of Architecture Anne Cormier, Georges Adamczyk and Jean-Pierre Chupin on the Interuniversity team of the Laboratory for the Study of Potential Architecture.
