Not only is the Jacques Cartier Bridge emblematic of Montreal, it is also an urban icon with unique historical and architectural value. It is one of the greatest technical achievements of the 20th century, and as such, its illumination will be a central element in the celebrations surrounding Montreal and Canada’s 375th and 150th anniversaries, respectively. A multidisciplinary approach has been key in creating a project this unique and innovative. The lights will reflect the dynamic character of the city’s seasons and citizens. The Jacques Cartier and Champlain Bridges Incorporated (JCCBI) are proud to pool their expertise in civil engineering and managing major projects by piloting this project that will let Québécois know-how shine. The project, which was conceptualized and designed by Moment Factory and six multimedia and lighting studios in Montreal, presents some interesting challenges. Discover how engineers from different fields have collaborated in creating this signature visual hallmark for Montreal.
