This ideas competition explores the potential present of Griffintown, at a time when its past and future have been brought into the public eye

This week our “Griffintown Horse Palace” entry ‘was shortlisted for the Horse Palace as a part of the Griffintown Interrupted Ideas competition in Montreal Canada.

These urban stables, dating from the era when thousands of horses filled the Griffintown streets,are still in operation: the horses spend their nights at the Palace, and their days pulling carriages through Old Montreal. Efforts are in place to preserve this pastoral moment in the middle of the city; the Horse Palace Foundation has plans to make this the site of a Griffintown Museum, with the stables remaining in operation alongside the galleries.”

Please Vote for our entry titled “Griffintown Horse Palace” Online  NOW until Dec. 10th
