Basic information

For more complete information on this project, please download the full announcement.

The McGill Schools of Architecture and Music (Facility for Architectural Media and Mediation (FARMM) and the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology (CIRMMT)) are teaming up in a unique collaboration between architects, musicians, music technologists, and engineers to design and build a music pavilion for the lower campus. The McGill Bicentennial Stage and Pavilion (BSP) has been approved by the University as one of three major student and faculty driven projects in celebration of McGill University’s 200th anniversary (2020).

The project will be designed in the winter 2019 term in a Selected Topics or Directed Research course including students and faculty from the Schools of Architecture and Music. The pavilion will be physically built/prototyped in the summer 2019 term (ARCH514: Community Design Workshop, May-June timeframe, TBD) at the Jardins du Métis/Reford Gardens near Rimouski, QC ( as part of an inaugural design-build initiative. It will be built primarily in wood and must be capable of being assembled, disassembled, stored, and reassembled over the years.

If you are interested in participating, please attend a 30-minute information session in Room 212, Macdonald-Harrington Building on 27 November at 13h30 (after GASA General Assembly).
