Client: Centre Phi
Embodying and deploying PHI’s legacy, PHI Contemporain will be a new permanent space to consolidate, expand and bring together PHI’s cultural offering, PHI’s communities and the city’s public life.
Located in Old Montreal and built on a site steeped in history – comprising an assemblage of four historic buildings and an adjacent lot – PHI Contemporain will consolidate the public cultural offering of the PHI Foundation and the PHI Centre. The 6,900 m² / 74,000 ft² project will house exhibition spaces, a network of new media galleries, mediation, research and studio spaces, as well as an extended public realm. The Berlin architectural firm Kuehn Malvezzi and the Montreal firm Pelletier de Fontenay will work in consortium to produce the design for PHI Contemporain.
