Climbing industry / Escalade industrielle


Re-using abandoned industrial sites is one of the hardest goal to achieve for cities. If turning them into museums was the first wave of evolution, other initiatives are worth our attention, such as the one presented here: the transformation of old sugar silos in Montreal in an indoor climbing club with amazing height facilities. A sensitive and successful recycling which makes perfect sense with the excessive heights in silos.

Réutiliser les lieux industriels devenus inutiles est l’un des objectifs les plus durs à atteindre pour les villes. Si les musées ont été une première vague de transformation, d’autres initiatives sont à remarquer, dont celle-ci: la transformation des silos d’une ancienne sucrerie à Montréal en un club d’escalade indoor d’une taille hors du commun. Un réaménagement réussi qui se structure parfaitement dans les hauteurs démesurées des silos. Une réutilisation parfaite.
