The multi-sensory installation Escales découvertes in Mount Royal Heritage Site, Montreal is using 3D bronze orientation maps; conical stone place-markers; and belvedere-like halts, each showcasing a specific landscape view, contextualising adjacent landscape features. The Jigsaw font family is used throughout the project through engraved, laser-cut or polished stone applications. Immersive and engaging, the project invites Montrealers and visitors to continually renew their experience of the mountain through a fuller understanding of place.
