Interactive website

An interactive inventory of highrise logos on the contemporary Montréal skyline. Four panoramas; day and night views; design and installation details for many prominent logos. The skyline has already changed since this piece was created in 2007.

While the ultimate goal of the Logocities project was to gather testimony from architects, designers, signmakers, city planners, workers and residents, this first phase is concerned with the important first step of mapping and identification. Through this interface, the Montreal city skyline of 2007 can be viewed from four vantage points around the city, in daylight and at night. Key logos and signs can be investigated in terms of their locations, origins and histories by floating the cursor over the logos.

This interactive project was funded through a research-creation grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
