Vivre et archiver chaque page qui se tourne

Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec

As part of the celebrations for its tenth-year anniversary, the Bibliothèque et archive nationale du Québec (BAnQ)’s wanted to emphasize its commitment to staying relevant in the digital age. Based on major research conducted in close collaboration with library staff, the concept had to be atmospheric, yet technologically modern.

Design & production

The history of archiving was illustrated by four graphic tableaux. Architectural projections on the building itself highlighted the BAnQ’s great cultural treasures. The mix of scans, pixelated images, 3D blocks and photo montages spoke of modernity and access to knowledge. 

The accompanying musical soundtrack composed by René Lussier gave each tableau it’s own rhythm and voice, and the BAnQ logo, a little rock’n’roll.
