placebo Given the impact on the body and mind generated by various built spaces, one could imagine an homeopathic architecture. Architecture thus becomes grippable, edible, degradable. Every space, on or under ground or water is a potential of exploration for the human body.

14

The “milieu� is the ecosystem, the global locus of architecture, composed amongst others of specific animals, organic species, rocks, waste, wrecks, climate and river flows. These elements already begin a form of spatialization.

times The location of the Lab is an abandonend island, composed of wild nature and waste, freezed in a certain death. Once the water crossed, one can acknowledge its need of revitalization.

16

The river is a place of constant movements. This also applies to architecture, which, for its viability, resists to some movements and embrace others, becoming malleable along with the river flow.

ultra-violence Architecture is an act of violence. Noisy, dirty, frozen, it shakes an ecostystem in all its physical dimensions, whether they are perceptible or not. It is, by definition, transgressive. The construction of the anthropological space universally works by additionning or subtracting the objects of the “mileu”.

18

The act of building will fundamentaly change all the climate and sensitive variables of the place. Considering, this project suggests a certain form of violence, though temporary. The purpose of it all is to create inbalance to achieve, eventually, a balance with the “milieu”., the ecosystem.

Nordic base camp for Inuit hunters and researchers in Kangiqsualujjuaq, Nunavik, Canada 2015

northernness (n) : The state or condition of being northern in situation. Contradictions generate architectural form.

“ I see it ! Down the hill, through the blizzard. There are people on the circle deck. There is a pale light under the polycarbonate skin.�

21


ethereal space As it is a research base, the project implies temporary architecture : it will eventually evaporate and leave tracks. Building something that exists but will not exist. In this part of Canada, the winters are mostly dark : the project is thought as an horizontal lighthouse. The morphology of the architecture is defined by its parts of light and shadow, like ethereal volumes.

22

Building on a land which first belonged to aborigene cultures is a sensitive topic, as new american culture has already assimilated the natives. The issues of style, construction technics and the vernacular raise questions when establishing new architectural objects.

digesting light Summers in Nunavit are bright, as the sun nearly never sets. Our bodies, in order to rest, need darkness. Our minds, in order to develop, also need to feel the indoor / outdoor link while experiencing architecture Considering, filled and empty spaces allow the sun to smoothly light up living units, creating a percepetion of brightness along with the proximity of outdoor landscapes

24

Here, contradiction generates form, balancing between essential needs and cultural identity issues.

Public stop for town crier. Giant megaphone-shaped urban furniture. Montreal, Canada 2016

From concept to scale one-prototype of a micro architecture. Welding, bending, rusting and shaping steel to make urban statements.

“ Can you hear ? It’s the town crier shouting his daily notes. It is funny how his voice echoes against those weird steel arches ”

27


accordion Sometimes, you just need to shoot it out loud. Folded, GÊrald is a little urban arch inside which passersby can write messages, notes that they want to pass on. Unfolded by the town’s crier, it becomes a urban voice amplifier which ensures the transmission of the messages.

manifesto The topic is the creation of a space to give a voice to people who do not have one. The town’s crier stop is a material expression of daily outrage, notes, thoughts that are made public and heard by everyone passing by in the city street.

30

Time sets up two different layers on the steel structure : first, the rust that covers the material after slow oxydation, then the layers of messages written by people. Both witness the dynamic of the city, the urge to be seen, heard, and leave tracks.

Shelves for fresh fruits and vegetables Competition for Montreal grocery stores MontrĂŠal, Canada 2016

Furniture experimentation with ice as a material for its cooling and aesthetic properties. Models and modularity patterns

“ In the back, last rank, on the left, near the cereals. Some tomatoes are steel hanging there, under the ice drops. Yes, sir, they are fresh.�

33


rough cold Challenge here is the combination of modularity and refreshing system. The position is to consider ice as a furniture building material. It is used in its rudimentary form for its rudimentary purpose : being and spreading cold. Renewable ice cubes are strategically set up in a perforated metal box between the fruits and vegetables.

34

The three states of water inhabit the design of the shelves and allow conservation for all the groceries, as ice melts down in liquid and goes up in vapour. | MĂŠlissa Primeau with

Ce bac une fois rempli pourra être congelé pour continuer cette chaîne de réfrigération. Au sommet de l’étalage se trouve un espace plus sombre sans interaction directe avec l’eau de la glace sauf le froid que celle-ci produit. Le sommet permet de ranger des fruits et légumes ayant besoin d’une température ambiante fraiche et d’un endroit sans lumière directe tel que les pommes de terre, oignons, courges, etc. Les filets qui servent de support pour recevoir les produits sont extensibles et se moulent selon le nombre de fruits et légumes qu’ils contiennent, de sorte qu’ils ne tombent pas. De plus, ces filets détiennent un crochet à chacune de leur extrémité pour pouvoir les déplacer et venir s’accrocher dans les trous prévus à cet effet sur la structure. L’étalage dû à sa modularité offre une multitude de façons de disposer les aliments. Les matériaux choisis sont propices au refroidissement de la structure.

Rehabilitation events in old cereal factory Morphopolis Competition Montréal, Canada 2015

Rehabilitation project in phases : architecture through the tourism of demolition and mutations of the industrial building past

“Come, come, ladies and gentlemen ! Contemplate over here the removal of the factory’s skin and hold on tight to the zip line.”

37


stepping steel Silo Nr.5 is an old cereal factory located in the Old Port of MontrĂŠal. The city possesses numerous monumental buildings that witness a important passed industrial activity. It is a project of steps, mainly consisting of a scenographied construction yard. A giant walkway is built through the structures for contemplating purposes only and to simultaneously observe the landscape and the evolution of the project.

38

The program then migrates from the walkway to the rest of the buildings, being redesigned as offices and entertainment spaces.

39


total playground The different buildings of the factory are at a monumental scale and composed of oversized filled and empty spaces. The structure is “set free” as the metal skin of the central buildings is removed and reprogrammed as leisure or experimental art installations.

40

The singular industrial objects in place are to be kept as potential entertainment or industrial memory elements. For instance, cereal slides would become bobsled runs, and old cylindrical silos could be turned into hanging gardens above the site. | Célestine Fauteux Mélissa Primeau with

Landscape plan proposition for new town center Summer Workshop Lac Megantic, Canada 2016

Summer School In-Situ workshop on Rebuilding Lac Megantic, which town center was destroyed by train explosion in 2013

“ Indeed, in the 2020’s, humans would drive everywhere with their cars and build immense bridges whenever they felt like it. It changed.”

43


proof by contradiction The rudimentary purposes of a bridge is to cross and to link. It is the symbolic and material binding element between two entities. A bridge can also be a major disturbance in the landscape, especially in little towns like Lac Megantic. We were asked to design a panoramic bridge crossing the railway line through the new town’s center.

44

Three propositions of bridges were submitted, which immediately showed the absurdity of such an object. Indeed, a bridge can be dematerialized, as long as you keep the symbol of it : the final proposition was an horizontal bridge, consisting in a big-scale landscape composed of small valleys and sport or leisure equipments

45


landscape + As the panoramic bridge in the town center becomes obsolete, there is still a desire to reach higher among the inhabitants, in order to contemplate the lake and forest landscape from above.

46

Several architectural propositions were submitted, all considered as extensions or valorisation of the existing landscape. | Catherine Chevalier Laurence Gaudette Johana Pignard with
