“The switch is the railway mechanism that allows the management and safety of trains during track changes, under the responsibility of a controller, himself located in a tower or signal box. (…) Our proposal recalls the railway history of Luc-Larivée Drive, supports the original concept of Simon-Valois Square and metaphorically describes a meeting zone: a place at the crossroads of different urban movements and displacements where safety is at the heart of the design.”
