L’eau Lachine

L’eau Lachine takes place on the Lachine Canal in Montreal Canada. The Lachine Canal was originally built to transport large ships to the factories. Water had a big impact in Montreal which has been lost. The canal was later used for the disposal of industrial waste which contaminated the water. Through the analysis of the site, the canal suffers from many issues associated with the remains of its industrial past. Among these is a lack in community and connection to the water. Thus, the project is about connecting a series of baths for people to swim in and converse during the summer which is then transformed for the winter. A place for the community to get together.
