The fourth annual Design Montréal Open House wrapped up on Sunday, May 2nd. A total of 20,313 people took the opportunity to visit, free of charge, one or more of the approximately 100 participating Montréal design agencies, projects and presentation venues.
During these two days devoted to design, visitors met the winners of national and international design competitions in their work surroundings and had a chance to explore their latest creations. From video screenings to models, 3D animation, exhibitions, interactive installations, entertaining and educational activities for youngsters aged 10 and under, organizers pulled out all the stops to allow members of the public to better understand the work of designers and demystify their ideas about design, in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere conducive to exchanges of ideas and discussions.
At the exhibition-performance Regard 9, visitors had an opportunity to admire the talents of nine up-and-coming Montréal designers as they created one-of-a-kind works on the spot. The next generation of designers was also highlighted at exhibitions showcasing the work of graduating university students in the various design and architecture disciplines.
