Architecture students’ project on the redevelopment of the Filtex site in 2020
Share this news
In February 2020, a public exhibition was held at the Arts Sutton gallery to present to the population the models of a village core reinvented by architecture students from the Université de Montréal. This project, supported by the Town of Sutton and directed by their professor, gave these students the opportunity to carry out an important structured work, aiming at imagining a redevelopment of the place.
The exhibition attracted many visitors, curious to see their ideas and proposals. Their work encouraged discussion: comments and suggestions from citizens were collected during the exhibition. Specific needs were named: common picnic areas, green spaces, opportunity to admire the landscape, dual purpose pond, gathering space (amphitheatre or community hall), sanitary space (toilets, outdoor shower), parking, bicycle and pedestrian space for mobility in the village core, conservation of the site’s heritage and history.
