- Space for Life
The Société des musées québécois awards its 2013 Prix Excellence to The Montréal Space for Life for the creation of the Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan
Last night, with immense pride, the Montréal Space for Life team accepted the Prix Excellence – institutional group 1, awarded by the Société des musées québécois for the creation of the Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan. Officially inaugurated last April 6, this new institution, a milestone for the Montréal Space for Life, offers a unique approach to the world by creating new ways of connecting with the Universe. The jury was moved by this ingenious combination of art, science and emotion that propels the visitor into a dizzying experience, and it praised the innovative concept as much as the architectural quality that aligns strength and distinctiveness while respecting the highest standards of sustainable development. This peer recognition highlights the boldness of the Montréal Space for Life in making this ambitious project a reality.
