  1. I have wondered about this for quite sometime. A recent trip to europe only made me more aware of it. Why do we, in Montreal, have such large suburban trains? This in comparison to paris for example. here the new bimodal locomotives for the AMT as oposed to this: Pictured above is a Parisian RER train. They run on their own tracks as well as SNCF tracks. They appear to be between a conventional metro and a regular train in size. Meanwhile our AMT trains seem to be regional trains. I wondered why are OUR suburban trains so large and cumbersome, requiring locomotives and what not, while elsewhere they are light and quick. It certainly is not a distance issue, as the parisian RERs run MUCH farther distances than our AMT trains. It does not seem to be a cost issue either. And while i am aware that not all AMT lines are electrified, they very well should be. the whole point of public transport (as i see it) is to move people in a way that reduces congestion and pollution. I use the paris example, but other cities as copenhaggen or london have similar suburban trains to those in paris.

  3. Au Japon, le téléphone mobile commence à remplacer les clés d'appartement Porte-monnaie électronique, carte de crédit, titre de transport... le téléphone portable se veut désormais. Au Japon, il sert même de clé. Le promoteur immobilier Anabuki va ainsi installer dans trente immeubles représentant 5.000 logements des serrures électroniques activées par un téléphone contenant une puce sans contact, selon un système développé par la société Index, nous apprend l'AFP. Anabuki, qui gère environ un millier d'immeubles au Japon, illustre ainsi l'adoption à grande échelle de ce type d'application, jugée par beaucoup plus pratique et plus sûre que les clés et les serrures classiques. Index, une entreprise de services Internet sur mobile, est l'une des sociétés à avoir développé un dispositif de serrure activée par la lecture d'une puce sans contact, composant déjà intégré dans un quart des 100 millions de téléphones portables en circulation au Japon. Pour fermer leur porte à clef, les résidents d'immeubles équipés n'ont qu'à effleurer le lecteur de la serrure avec leur téléphone portable. L'avantage de cette "clef virtuelle" est qu'elle peut être répliquée sur les mobiles de chaque membre de la famille, expliquent ses concepteurs. En cas de perte du téléphone, elle peut être désactivée très rapidement, par une simple commande informatique. On peut aussi vérifier à distance, depuis son mobile, qu'on a bien fermé la porte. Et si tel n'est pas le cas, on peut le faire à distance, sans retourner chez soi en courant. De même peut-on créer une clef temporaire, valable une journée ou moins, pour un ami, le concierge ou un livreur. Pour les habitants des immeubles équipés, le mobile sert aussi de clef de boîte à lettre et consignes collectives, ainsi que de mode de paiement des distributeurs et autres services équipant éventuellement la résidence. Cette fonction "multi-sésame" s'ajoute aux porte-monnaie électroniques, cartes de crédit, titres de transport et badges d'entreprises que peut aussi supporter simultanément la puce sans contact des téléphones, en l'occurrence la Felica de Sony. L'un des pionniers de ce système a été la société Kesaka, dont le système est déjà installé ou le sera prochainement dans une cinquantaine d'immeubles et complexes résidentiels au Japon.

  5. In the United States, you can never be more than 115 miles from a McDonalds, with most locations being closer to 20 miles or less. Alors je suis curieux - quelle est la distance de votre McDonalds / Tim Hortons le plus proche? Pull up Google Earth and use the straight-line measuring tool to find out! My closest McDonalds (straight line): 1.20km Second closest McDonalds (straight line): 1.32km My closest Tim Hortons (straight line): 1.33km Second closest Tim Hortons (straight line): 1.43km NOTE: Measure your distances in a straight line!
  6. Photographer Chris Forsyth on the Montreal Metro, Going Underground, and Overlooked Architecture Montreal-based photographer Chris Forsyth doesn’t see his city the way others do — that much is evident from his body of work, which includes rooftop photos of the Montreal skyline, nocturnal shots taken from the arm of a crane and now, images from the underground. The Montreal Metro Project is Forsyth’s latest series, documenting the often overlooked architecture of the urban subway since October 2014. Composed of 68 stations, each designed by a different architect between the 60s and 70s, the Montreal Metro system is as diverse and idiosyncratic as the city it underpins. Forsyth captures the stations empty of passengers, highlighting their architecture and reframing them in a manner rarely experienced. ArchDaily spoke to Forsyth about the series and the creative process behind it. Read his responses and view selected images from The Montreal Metro project after the break. Is there a reason for capturing these usually crowded urban environments without people? I often avoid having people in my photos for a few reasons. Firstly, due to the nature of my photos, the length of the exposure rarely works with people. When shooting with shutter speeds around 1 second, you either have to get lucky and hope people stand still enough, or avoid people all together. But people do make spaces much more interesting in certain situations. They offer a sense of scale that’s necessary for certain images, and unnecessary for others. Secondly, photographing on private property, I have to be conscious of others. I’m not allowed to photograph STM employees strictly, and out of general consideration, I avoid photographing people to avoid disruption. What message about this overlooked architecture do you hope to convey through the Montreal Metro Project? I hope to show that beautiful architecture and design is accessible and present in all spaces (with exceptions of course). In the metros, even the tiling of each station and the spacing of the signage was meticulously considered. The color of the trains, which were at one point supposed to be red, the city’s color, went through much debate too. I just want to show how beautiful it can be if you take the time to really look at the stations. Just take a moment to walk around and look every once in a while. How much is your perception of a city altered by experiencing it from underground? My sense of space and distance is drastically altered when taking the metro. I can hop on the metro in one neighborhood, travel the distance of 5 stations in a matter of minutes, and find myself disoriented at another station in a completely different part of the city. When traveling underground in dark tunnels, you lose a sense of time and distance. It’s not like driving at street level where you can connect A to B by streets and landmarks. When you’re underground, you only have the design of stations to tell you where you are. For how long has this project been ongoing, and what sparked your initial interest in metro stations? The project has been ongoing for about 6 months now. Taking the metro every day for several years now, I developed an obsession of sorts. I found the story behind the system interesting, from the planning and construction, to the reason behind why the metros ride on rubber tires as opposed to steel wheels. The more I learn about it, the more I’m intrigued. Not to mention, during the winter it’s a great place to hide from the cold and find inspiration. Is there any other “overlooked” architecture that you hope to explore in the future? I just love architecture, design, and urban spaces. I’m interested in photographing everything from the interiors of factories, to the architecture of holdout buildings as well as more commonplace architecture of course.
