During the last 50 years the city of Montreal has developed along the motorway linking the city to YUL-MTL airport. The airport has been progressively incorporated within the urban fabric, becoming the catalysing centre of urban expansion.
The aim of the “Fertile Infrastructures” project, which received a mention of honour in the City of Montreal competition, was therefore to rethink the airport area through a series of green corridors, improvement of the water system and a number of design devices involving noise, green spaces, the energy system, navigation and intermodal transport.
