Price Tags #87 coverWhat makes a great urban space? In the August issue of Price Tags, Gordon Price features the best outdoor urban rooms of Montreal. Areas for public use blend smoothly into urban structures, while events throughout the year, such as McGill’s sidewalk art gallery, draw residents and visitors into beautiful and accommodating city spaces.

In comparison, Vancouver’s design has created fewer options for urban recreation. Vancouver looks out, while Montreal looks in, says Price, and he ponders whether future growth will take after the style of Montreal.

Scattered through the issue are photos sent in by readers, for a “what’s outside my window” look at city living. You can see more of them on Gordon’s blog, or submit your own.
