Article source: ACDF Architecture

Critics and practitioners of architecture often convey a contradictory message in a quest to comprehend the essence of iconic architecture. The notions of many recent international projects strive to be iconic, but few actually become truly successful from the point of view of the ultimate critics, the people who use them.

Saint-Hyacinthe Aquatic And Recreational Centre in Québec, Canada, ACDF Architecture-Urbanisme-Intérieur

 
January 11th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: ACDF Architecture-Urbanisme-Intérieur

The expression of St. Hyacinthe’s Aquatic and Recreational Centre reflects a trend of modernity. The allegorical representation of a glacier appears as an imposing fragment on the natural landscape.   Across the flat horizon, the floating triangular masses of the building seek to anchor themselves with the ground. This scene is not alien to the Monteregian area of Québec, with its landscape of ancient eroded mountains forming a backdrop for the rectilinear farmland patterns of the area.
