Located on Berri Street and in the Quartier des Spectacles, the BAnQ (Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec) ensures the inventory, acquisition, preservation, dissemination and processing of the documentary heritage. It is one of the symbols of content and cultural diffusion of Montreal. The basic intention was to integrate the Quartier des Spectacles signature.
The contemporary architecture of the BAnQ is essential in its immediate environment. The same was true for the signature of the QoS. It had to be easily identifiable as much being integrated into its environment. A series of red light rings extend along the facade on Berri. A dynamic projection of red rings on the wall adjoining the main.
The animation of the red rings, either at the entrance or along the façade, accompanies the visitor’s journey within the BAnQ while giving him his participation in the QoS.
