Abstract:

Over the last few decades, reference to meaning in the design of public spaces has captured a great deal of attention from creators and theorists of landscape architecture. Landscape narrative is one of the strategies of this approach, defined as a method used by designers to instil meaning in a place by drawing on tangible and intangible components of the landscape. Created over 20 years ago, Place Émilie-Gamelin is one of the first intentional uses of this approach in Montréal. But while the original references to urbanity, nature and architecture dictated the design choices, they are no longer sufficient to grasp the meaning of the square, which is strongly defined by its uses and critical reception. By examining the intention of the designers, the media reactions and the changing and unexpected uses of the space, this article will attempt to establish the relationship between design, use and response by way of a changing narrative that can be understood on many levels. In doing so, it will attempt to clarify the relationship between the narrative approach and the fundamental imperatives of public space as a medium for sociability, identity and quality of life.
