This model is part of a set of pieces presented in the architectural competition for the National Bank building in Montreal near Bonaventure station. The model manufactured in 2018 required 2 weeks of execution.
The project is represented on a scale of 1/500 in a large urban context. It was above all to highlight the reflection of the project in its context. The building presented to the competition is thus represented in acrylic, and those surrounding in basswood, simplified and in a schematic manner.
The facades of the main building were made by laser cutting the pattern from acrylic sheets. It was important for this second skin to let light pass through since the model is equipped with a lighting device to showcase the project.
