The Morrin Centre on the Front Page of Le Soleil!

(Québec) Ce sont les yeux brillants et la bouche grande ouverte que les premiers spectateurs de LumoCité ont vu mercredi soir quatre constructions architecturales de la ville prendre vie par un froid mordant. Si tous se sont émerveillés devant le génie des effets 3D réalisés par les équipes venant d’Europe, des États-Unis et du Québec , celles-ci ont cependant dû faire quelques ajustements en cette soirée de première. http://www.lapresse.ca/le-soleil/dossiers/carnaval-de-quebec/201302/06/01-4619180-lumocite-emerveille-et-impressionne.php?utm_categorieinterne=trafficdrivers&utm_contenuinterne=envoyer_cbp

Lumocité: Architectural mapping in Quebec

This week, a series of 3D light shows will be taking over the facades of some of the most recognizable buildings in Old Quebec: The Palais Montcalm, the Notre-Dame de Québec Basilica, the Morrin Centre and the fortifications at the entrance to the Plains of Abraham. The projections are part of Lumocité, the first event of its kind in North America. Our Rachelle Solomon spoke with Alain Dubé about bringing multimedia teams from around the world to Quebec to bring buildings to life – in light and sound – with architectural mapping.

Elevators And Exteriors

Two contracts linked to Phase II of the restoration project were signed this week. The first contract deals with the complex issue of our custom-built elevator. After months and years of negotiating with government authorities for funding, and with the manufacturers for the best possible price, we finally came to an agreement. Menuiserie Pouliot, who worked with us in the spring, should complete work on this project by summer 2009. The second contract deals with all the work on the exterior of the building. This includes everything from broken windows to our service entrance, not to mention the security exits at the back. Maçonnerie dynamique will complete this work and should begin in early March 2009.
