After years of planning, the Faubourg Saint-Jean-Baptiste has a new ephemeral public space, the Passage Olympia. It is inspired by the theatre of the same name that stood there in the early 20th century.

In an effort to brighten up the city and improve the quality of life in certain neighbourhoods, a variety of unique, temporary public spaces have been popping up around the city over the past few years.
