THE LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE TEAM LEADERS
Isabelle Giasson (pictured right) has an extensive portfolio of award-winning projects in landscape design, urban revitalization and master planning. As president of the Association des architectes paysagistes du Québec (AAPQ) since 2015, she has been a tireless advocate for her profession and peers. In 2020, Isabelle was inducted into the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects’ (CSLA) College of Fellows in two categories: for the exemplary quality of her works in landscape architecture and for her direct service to the Society.
Marie-France Turgeon (pictured left) has inspired colleagues through her innovative and contextual solutions to environmental challenges for more than twenty years. She has a great deal of experience in delivering projects for municipalities and for First Nations, notably working with the Huron-Wendat First Nation of Wendake. Marie-France also specializes in playground design and is a certified Canadian playground inspector.
EVOQ’s strength lies in its broad spectrum of expertise and a collaborative network of offices in Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Iqaluit. EVOQ can count on an ample talent pool of over 130 professionals with specializations in heritage conservation, planning, Inuit and First Nations work, contemporary residential and institutional design.
“We are delighted to have welcomed these landscape architecture and urban design firms into EVOQ. Together, we will broaden the range of services that we offer our clients”, says Alain Fournier, managing partner of EVOQ Architecture.
