在这个炎炎夏日,Mont-Royal 大道上想要休憩一下的行人可以享受L’Aire装置所提供的阴凉,这是一个处于Mont-Royal高原中心,能够引发人们情感共鸣的空中装置。具体而言,装置安装在Mont-Royal和Boyer街角处Fleurs-de-Macadam广场上空30英尺高的地方。

During the whole summer on Mont-Royal Avenue, passersby who want to take a break will be able to enjoy shaded areas provided by L’Aire, an evocative aerial installation located in the heart of Plateau-Mont-Royal. More specifically, it has been installed 30 feet above Place Fleurs-de-Macadam on the corner of Mont-Royal and Boyer.

设计者精心挑选了“L’Aire”这个名字,希望能够反映出装置所含的多重目的:一个让行人聚集于此,休息、玩耍、欣赏作品趣味几何形状的区域。沿着倾斜高度方向安装在Fleurs-de-Macadam广场上,L’Aire由10个沐浴着夏日阳光、色彩缤纷的三角盒子构成,像是对抗着重力的大型风筝。装置透明/非透明的双重特征形成白天不断移动的阴影区域。这是一个吸引旁观者透过彩色棱镜仰望天空的作品,它的存在也提醒着人们去享受此次此刻和拥抱愉悦、无忧无虑的时光。

The name L’Aire was carefully chosen by its creators who wanted the title to reflect its multiple purposes: an area where passersby can gather to rest, play, and take in the work’s geometric playfulness. Installed diagonally high above Place Fleurs-de-Macadam, L’Aire features ten colourful triangle boxes bathing in the summer light and is meant to evoke a large kite defying gravity. The duality of its transparent/opaque nature results in shaded areas that shift throughout the day. It is a piece that invites onlookers to look up and gaze at the sky through a colourful prism. Its purpose is also to serve as a reminder to enjoy the now and embrace delightful, carefree moments.

这一独特的装置因Mont-Royal大道Société de développement公司而得以实现,由Odace Événements、EN TEMPS ET LIEU与Impact Production合作完成。L’Aire是一个实验性的项目,目的在于引发公众对公共空间的讨论,这无疑为设计者带来了一些挑战。来自Odace Événements的Stéphanie Leduc说:“在达到期望的结果之前,我们必须做大量的研究:研究太阳的运转以实现装置性能最优化。我们必须考虑装置产生的阴影区域在整个白天甚至整个季节中的变化。我们谨慎地挑选了能够融入Fleurs-de-Macadam广场环境之中的颜色和形状。”

This unique art installation was made possible by the Société de développement de l’avenue du Mont-Royal and was produced by Odace Événements and EN TEMPS ET LIEU, in collaboration with Impact Production. L’Aire, which is an experimental project designed to provoke discussion about public spaces, certainly presented a few challenges for its designers. “We had to do a lot of research before achieving the desired result: we studied the movements of the sun to maximize the benefits of the installation. We had to take into account the shaded areas produced that shifted throughout the day and over the season. We were also very focused on how we were going to integrate the installation into the surrounding area. We carefully chose the colours and shapes to emulate the environment of Place Fleurs-de-Macadam,” said Stéphanie Leduc from Odace Événements.

L’Aire这个充满诗意的夏季装置,将于2019年10月前一直漂浮在广场上空。

L’Aire, a poetic, summer installation, will continue to float high in the sky until October 2019.
