New signage and urban visibility for Concordia University
The project aims to consolidate the urban visibility of this major institution in Montreal. The concept is based on 3 key areas : establish Concordia underground network as an important part of ''Montreal souterrain'', create a strong expression of the gates onto street level and create a unique Concordia skyline, a luminous light line jumping from building to building in the district.

Lighting as identity for downtown
In collaboration with Rudi Baur, we created this Montreal area's visual identity and installation using a lighting design that reflects the city's changing activities. For the following eight years, up until 2012, we managed and developed the site's lighting choreography.
Evolving landscape at Montréal airport
We were invited to submit a design proposal for a large-scale installation at Montreal's airport. A total of 21 glass panels are used to display the letters YUL. This project was realized in collaboration with Erick Villeneuve and engineers at BRP and the Transportation Technology Centre.
Memorial to the Olympics
Elements in the landscape are laid out as a grid to represent each of the olympic sports, and produce stripes along the valley.
