Grand Théâtre de Québec in Canada by Lemay and Atelier 21

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

Article source: v2com

An innovative Canadian first for a heritage preservation project of its size, the new glass envelope that will protect the Grand Théâtre de Québec is a Lemay and Atelier 21 consortium design and the winning solution in the cultural complex’s architectural competition.

Faced with the severe deterioration of its concrete envelope, made of prefabricated panels, the Grand Théâtre de Québec needed an intervention to ensure its longevity. The team’s proposed solution was holistic, delicate, transparent and understated. The jury was charmed by the concept of a protective shell around architect Victor Prus’ creation, a brutalist icon inaugurated in 1971.

Expansion of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (MNBAQ) in Canada by OMA

Sunday, April 16th, 2017

Article source: OMA

The Pierre Lassonde Pavilion—the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec’s fourth building is interconnected yet disparate—is a subtly ambitious, even stealthy, addition to the city. Rather than creating an iconic imposition, it forms new links between the park and the city, and brings coherence to the MNBAQ.

Ubisoft’s 400 video game creators located in Quebec City have been settling in to their new workspaces since last May.

The lighting of these new spaces, designed to encourage creative projects, was at the heart of the conception and LumiGroup’s expertise was called upon to achieve all the of the project’s objectives, including the importance of creating an efficient, dynamic, and inspiring living environment, representative of Ubisoft’s DNA.

Boustrophedon Garden in Québec City, Canada by PLANT Architect

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Article source: PLANT Architect

boustrophedon: Alternating right to left and left to right –
the pattern of oxen tilling the land, or of an ancient form of writing.

The  6.1m x 21.3m Boustrophedon Garden was one of eleven “Ephemeral Gardens” made for Québec City’s year-long 400th anniversary festival in 2008, and were on show from June 16 to September 30, 2008. Gardens were intended to reflect the major festival themes including the indigenous region and its peoples, and the French settlement of Québec. Our response was to draw ideas from Québec’s regional long-lot system – fundamental to creating the distinctive thin-striped pattern of agricultural development in the province – and Samuel de Champlain’s (the great explorer, and founder of Québec City) rigorous agricultural experimentation and recordings done to ensure the survival of the future colonizers of New France in the 17th century.

National Museum of Fine Arts – Expansion Proposal in Quebec City, Canada by OMA Architect

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Article source: OMA Architect

The MNBAQ and its new pavilion are enveloped in a context of historical heritage. Listed buildings in a historical park populated by centenary trees constitute a straightjacket of inhibiting concerns. The complexity of the context- the urban requirements, the respect for heritage, the significance of the surroundings, the dispersal of the various museum buildings, the heterogeneity of the historical buildings constitutes a series of paradoxes that we had to deal with.

Expansion of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (MNBAQ) in Canada by OMA

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

Article source: OMA

The new building for the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec – the museum’s fourth building in an increasingly complicated site, interconnected yet disparate – is a subtly ambitious, even stealthy, addition to the city. Rather than creating an iconic imposition, it forms new links between the park and the city, and brings new coherence to the MNBAQ.
