Montreal Quebec Canada Dreams

As architects we often spend a great deal of energy on projects that at the moment feel like the most important work we’ve ever done.  We forget that although we have influence over design we have no control over political will, the economy, and most of all territorial rights and approvals.  That being said, some of our best work gets locked away in the vault or collects dust on a shelf somewhere in the office.

Pendulum designed this ballpark with intensions for placement on the Expo 67 Island in Montreal Quebec Canada.  At the time it felt like the one opportunity we’d have in a long time to aggressively stretch our design thinking – after all, the ballpark is surrounded by architectural icons.

Unfortunately the project came to a screeching halt.  Ten years after the fact our CEO, Jonathan O’Neil Cole said he dreamt he attended an event at the facility….then he woke up with notes on required design adjustments…so that’s what we did.

We never stop thinking about how to make our projects better…As Jonathan always says: “Design Is Change”.
