Izakaya Kinoya in Montréal, Canada by Jean de Lessard

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

Article source: Jean de Lessard

For its latest Kinoya, interior designer Jean de Lessard has tapped into the sources to emulate in his design the primary spirit, function and aesthetics of the izakaya[1], as the latter was originally an informal place where people drank beer and sake. The transformation is particularly unusual that it explores through extreme design  intimacy in relationships between people, making of Kinoya a true representation of the unique approach the designer has developed about the different ways of occupying a space.

Lasalle Waterworks Building in Montreal, Canada by Affleck de la Riva architects

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

Article source: Affleck de la Riva architects

The history of civilisations and cities are intrinsically tied to the presence of water.  Ancient civilisations grew up in fertile river valleys and the development of cities depended on the ready availability of water for both potable use and public sanitation.  The infrastructure used to control and distribute water in the urban environment has a long and distinguished architectural history.

Article source: SUSTAINABLE.TO + ERA Architects

The Sky-o-swale is a shade-water structure that filters rainwater through a green roof, into an underground cistern. The water is used to irrigate the Community Garden. More than that, the Sky-o-swale is a shaded community gathering space—a stage for performances and seating for the Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment (MLSE) /Jumpstart sports pad. It’s a wondrous structure, with a truly amazing history.

L’ÉCRAN (THE SCREEN) in Québec, Canada by Alain Carle

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

Article source: Alain Carle

The contextual constraint of this project, located on a lakeshore, enabled us to pursue the exploration of the possibilities of work geared to perceptual considerations. Narrow in depth, the site presented several setback constraints (next to a lake, stream, street, etc.). The buildable area was therefore somewhat narrow and irregular, which nonetheless offered the opportunity to design a project outside the typical precepts of “stylish” residences. The difficulty with respect to layout also facilitated discussions with the owners during the presentation of the concept, because there could be no question here of an idealized form. On the contrary, the site imposed a non-premeditated conceptual approach, anchored in the possible rather than what was there.

Article source: Kempster Jamrozik Studio

“Line Garden” by Coryn Kempster and Julia Jamrozik was installed as part of the 15th International Garden Festival, which runs until September 28th, 2014 at the Jardins de Métis / Reford Gardens in Grand-Métis, Quebec, Canada. Drawing on the formal language of historical garden design, and the contemporary means of mass-produced safety and construction materials, the project is a strong graphic intervention that aims to produce an abstract field.
