Governor General's Medals in architecture: the architects of the Michal and Renata Hornstein Pavilion for Peace honoured

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA) is delighted by the Governor General’s Medal in Architecture awarded at an official at ceremony Government House in Winnipeg for the Michal and Renata Hornstein Pavilion for Peace devoted to international art and education. The MMFA congratulates Atelier TAG and Jodoin Lamarre Pratte architectes, the two Montreal firms responsible for the realization in partnership of this building, honoured for its luminous and remarkable architecture.

It is to the architects Manon Asselin and Katsuhiro Yamazaki of Atelier Tag and Nicolas Ranger of Jodoin Lamarre Pratte that we owe this pavilion, opened in November 2016. Sited in the very centre of the city, it astonished the jury with its ingenious combination of generous gallery spaces and openness to the urban fabric. Visible from a distance, after sunset “it turns into an illuminated lantern, offering a transparent and welcoming transition from the museum to the city”, noted the jury.

The Museum wishes to congratulate all the other recipients of Governor General’s medals in architecture.
