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.

 

1 – 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 and Alexandra Paré
– Video editing : Julien Bouthillier
– The organizers thank the three main partners of the exhibition: Lab-École, Centre de design de l’UQAM, Laboratoire d’étude de l’architecture potentielle

2 – 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
– Special thanks to Virginie LaSalle
– Organization: Jean-Pierre Chupin and Alexandra Paré

– The organizers thank the three main partners of the exhibition: Lab-École, Centre de design de l’UQAM, Laboratoire d’étude de l’architecture potentielle

3 – 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
– Organization: Jean-Pierre Chupin and Alexandra Paré

How can design accelerate the transition from the end of the pandemic to a new experience of public transportation?

This design competition is part of a joint research initiative. The Concordia University Chair of Integrated Design, Ecology, and Sustainability for the Built Environment and the Canada Research Chair in Architecture, Competitions, Mediations of Excellence at Université de Montréal are working together to mobilize the creativity of young designers of the built environment in order to stimulate debate on the renewed experiences of public transportation for increased urban resiliency.

This 2021 edition is done in collaboration CRE-Montreal and ARTM. The Conseil régional de l’environnement de Montréal (CRE-Montreal) promotes sustainable development for the City of Montreal. The Autorité régionale de transport métropolitain (ARTM) is the transportation authority, which plans, funds, and promotes public transit and paratransit services for the Montréal metropolitan area.

This ideas competition seeks to gather:

  1. narratives of renewed experience of public transportation;
  2. design idea(s) for encouraging the use of public transportation;
  3. series of design principles for implementing a renewed experience of public transportation.

February 1, 2021: Competition Launch online + Registration Opens
March 1, 2021: Registration Closes
April 12, 2021: Competition Submission Deadline at 5:00PM EST
May 17, 2021: Event for the Announcement of the Winners.
