Absolute Towers in Toronto, Canada by MAD Architects

Friday, January 11th, 2013

Article source: MAD Architects

Modernism has a famous motto: A house is a machine for living in. However, as we progress further away from the machine age, we are left with a question: what message should architecture convey? What is the house of today?

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

Friday, January 11th, 2013

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.

Résidence Bromont in Canada By Blouin Tardif Architecture-Environnement

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Article source: Blouin Tardif Architecture-Environnement

Situated on a hill in the undulating countryside of Bromont, this secondary residence sits, between forest and clearing, at the end of a road burnished by time. The challenge consisted of evoking the vernacular architecture of the Eastern Townships while affirming the project’s contemporary nature and integrating the building into the landscape with minimal impact. The project blends with its surroundings through the simple forms of the rectangular plan and the metal gable roof.

Inhabitable Sculpture in Montreal, Canada By Jean-Maxime Labrecque

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Article source: Jean-Maxime Labrecque

The “inhabitable sculpture” project, which received two awards at the Grands prix du design 2011, is the result of four years of work executed by numerous fabrication and installation teams. Two premises were established by the client at the beginning of the project: “a space that people will find cold” and “living in an art gallery.” All designers hope, sooner or later, to obtain such a commission, which enables them to avoid subjecting their work to the obvious sacrosanct “warmth” obtained through wood.
