Alain Fournier and Éric Moutquin invited to give a workshop at the University of Montreal
For the second year in a row, the University of Montreal’s School of Architecture invited EVOQ Directors Alain Fournier and Éric Moutquin to deliver a workshop on realizing projects with Quebec’s Inuit and First Nations communities. During the workshop, 3rd-year students learned how to connect with communities in order to learn the specificities of their respective cultures. The objective is to reach a higher level of understanding and sensitivity as a prelude to co-creation and participative design.
This year’s presentation focused on the Kanien’keha: ka Onkwawén: na Raotitiohkwa Linguistic, Cultural and Theater Center project in the community of Kahnawà: ke. The community has been eagerly awaiting this project for many years.
We are also proud to announce that the “Symbiosis” project is the recipient of the Alcan ‐ Architecture49 grant. The scholarship is awarded to the project which shows a particular sensitivity to local architectural and cultural traditions.
