Cahiers des bonnes pratiques en design – Imaginer, réaliser la ville du 21e siècle

LEMIEUX, Denis et Mario BRODEUR (Dir.) (2008), Cahiers des bonnes pratiques en design – Imaginer, réaliser la ville du 21e siècle, élaboré par Design Montréal, Montréal.

The Cahiers des bonnes pratiques en design—Imaginer, réaliser la ville du 21e siècle (''Handbooks of Best Practices in Design—Imagining and Achieving the City of the 21st Century'') are destined for anyone interested in improving the quality of the urban environment (e.g., elected officials, developers, municipal managers, urban design professionals) and seeking examples to inspire their approaches as well as tools to guide their activities.

This publication is an initial production emerging from the 2007–2017 Action Plan – Montréal Cultural Metropolis, which aims at enriching the cultural quality of the living environment via the promotion of excellence in architecture and design. The partners in the event Rendez-vous November 2007 – Montréal, Cultural Metropolis agreed on the importance of ensuring the widespread implementation of design competitions, workshops and panels so as to ensure the quality of projects ''upstream'' and introduce both guidance tools and financial incentives to facilitate such practices.

The handbooks will be enhanced over the years through the addition of methodological guides and new examples of Montréal-based best practices.
