On the themes of the classroom, the gathering space and the relationship to the context, 3 videos from the CRC-ACME put into debate teams from the 5 competitions organized by LabÉcole for new elementary schools in Quebec. Produced by the Canada Research Chair in Architecture, Competitions and Mediations of Excellence, this set of 3 videos presents excerpts from 3 roundtables recorded in January and February 2021 with design teams of the projects submitted to the 5 competitions organized by Lab-École. These winning projects, finalists or submitted in the first phase of the competitions for the sites of Saguenay, Shefford, Maskinongé, Rimouski and Gatineau in 2020 were presented in the exhibition Devoirs d’architecture at the Centre de design de l’UQAM from September 2020 to February 2021. The pandemic did not allow the general public to discover these 160 projects for new elementary school in Quebec. These debates allow us to take the measure of the richness of the proposals.

ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION ABOUT THE CLASSROOM

The round table on the theme of The Classroom and Collaborative Spaces presents different physical and spatial devices imagined by Quebec architects to rethink spaces dedicated to teaching and learning.

  • Panelists

    Étienne Bernier, Christian Bisson, Jean-Pierre Chupin, Andréanne Dumont, Jérôme Duval, Bechara Helal, Sergio Morales, Alexandra Paré, Hubert Pelletier, Nathaniel Proulx Joannisse

  • Special thanks to

    Bechara Helal

  • Organization

    Jean-Pierre Chupin et Alexandra Paré

  • Video editing

    Julien Bouthillier

  • The organizers thank the three main partners of the exhibition

ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION ABOUT THE GATHERING SPACE

The round table on the theme of The Gathering Space presents a few variations and the dilemmas faced by the design teams become evident. Between spaces dedicated to very specific activities and “all-purpose spaces”, architects must harmonize proposals. The versatility of spatial devices has its qualities, but it can quickly demonstrate its limitations.

  • Panelists

    Randy Cohen, Katarina Cernacek, Jean-Pierre Chupin, Virginie LaSalle, Marie-Hélène Nollet, Alexandra Paré, Charles Laurence Proulx, Geneviève Riopel

ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION ABOUT THE SCHOOL AND ITS CONTEXT

The roundtable on the theme of The School and its Context shows that a standard cannot satisfy the complexity and richness of a given site, and even more so that architectural programs need to be always adapted to their context.

  • Panelists

    Philippe Ashby, Martin Brière, Jean-Pierre Chupin, Thomas-Bernard Kenniff, Guillaume Marcoux, Catherine Milanese, Lucie Paquet, Jessy Paquet-Methot, Alexandra Paré

Why write fiction when you are an architect? If the role of professionals in architecture is not, a priori, to write stories, some of them have a privileged relationship with literature. This is the case of Sergio Morales, a Quebec architect (co-founder of Chevalier Morales Architectes, a studio based in Montreal) and Pierre Blondel, a Belgian architect (founder of Pierre Blondel Architectes, a studio based in Ixelles). We went to meet them in order to better understand the place that writing occupies in their practice as designers.

Aurélien Catros and Maxime Leblanc jointly wrote a paper on reconstructive game models. Their research was based on a comparison between the video game Assassin’s Creed III and a 1775 map of Boston, with the goal of determining how closely historical cities are reproduced in video games. The pair are both doctoral students in Architecture. Their research will have highlighted the fact that a feeling of verisimilitude is achieved not through complete accuracy but through specific combinations of sufficiently accurate historic elements. Aurélien Catros is studying at the Université de Montréal, while Maxime Leblanc is studying at McGill University.

Students working on the Catalog of Canadian Competitions (CCC) and the Research Atlas on Exemplarity in Architecture and the Built Environment (AREA) work again in the laboratories of CRC-ACME.
