CAMPUS MIL: THE ABUNDANCE OF AN URBAN VOID

Winter 2021.

This research paper is the result of an independent study undertaken as part of a Design Arts Bachelors at Concordia University.

The unfinished Campus Mil site, located in Montreal's Outremont neighbourhood, analyzed during its drawn-out construction phase is used as a case study. The site and its conditions is a pertinent demonstration of environmental and social benefits which arise in informal, non-prescriptive, and ambiguous urban spaces. The paper proposes more nuanced and dynamic perspectives on urban development in contrast to the increasing trend of commercialization and privatizaton in cities.

Three theoretical frameworks were selected to demonstrate the abundance that arose from the site: Interstitial Space, the Open City and Urban Commons.
