L'Ordre des architectes du Québec (OAQ)

Discover architectural locations prized for their quality in the company of designers and owners


Montreal, Canada, 2011-02-08 - On Saturday, February 26, the Ordre des architectes du Québec (OAQ) and the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) invite architecture lovers to climb on board Spotlight on Architecture buses as part of the 2011 MONTREAL HIGH LIGHTS Festival and the Nuit blanche à Montréal. About ten locations and buildings recently honoured at the OAQ’s Excellence in Architecture Awards will be showcased on six proposed tour routes: buses will leave every hour between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. from the CCA entrance at 1920 Baile St., Montreal. The tour schedule and times are available in the Events section of the Excellence in Architecture Awards website at www.pea-oaq.com. Tickets are $15 per person and will go on sale on the actual day of the tours at the CCA’s library. The event features on-site visits with commentary by design architects and owners (English tours at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.).

Along the way, participants will discover and learn about the best in architecture on drives and visits to the following locations, depending on the chosen tour: Place des Festivals and Vitrines habitées on Jeanne-Mance St. (Daoust Lestage, architecture, urban design), Maison atelier du Moine Urbain, an eco-friendly construction that focuses on the use of renewable energy sources and recycled materials (Gabriel Rousseau, architect), ENAP installations and Conservatoire de musique et d’art dramatique, 11,000 square metres of classrooms, rehearsal rooms, practice studios, performance, concert and recital halls, a theatre, radio and television recording studios, student living quarters and libraries (Saia Barbarese Topouzanov architects), Théâtre Denise Pelletier, revitalized to seamlessly meld the old and the new (Saia Barbarese Topouzanov architects), Théâtre de Quat’sous, evoking the past into today’s architecture while incorporating the arts in an innovative way (architects FABG + Hal Ingberg for the work of art Katsu), Michel Brisson menswear boutique, a former bank building converted into a contemporary fashion destination (Saucier + Perrotte architects), Les Quatre Arbres, a 20-unit residential development in the heart of the Borough of Plateau Mont-Royal (architects Boutros + Pratte) and the new campus of Université de Sherbrooke in Longueuil, defining and crystallizing the development of a new city centre on the South Shore (consortium of architects: Marosi + Troy, Jodoin Lamarre Pratte, Labbé).

Continuing with this theme, the CCA will host a public viewing of all the prize-winning projects of the OAQ’s 26th Awards of Excellence in Architecture. Computers will be available on site for the public to register their vote for one of the prize winners while participating in the J’aime l’architecture! / I love architecture! contest. Between now and May 31, youth between the ages of 7 and 17 and adults can cast their vote at www.pea-oaq.com. Results of this vote will determine the winner of Loto-Québec’s People’s Choice Award and the Youth and Architecture Vision Award presented in collaboration with the law firm of Joli-Coeur Lacasse. Participation prizes will be drawn at random from among all voters (see prizes to be won). As well, in celebration of the Eighth Nuit blanche à Montréal, the CCA invites the public to visit its major exhibition “Journeys” from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. and enjoy a light show featuring a special concert by GRIMMES, DJ, some outdoor projections, an ice bar, the launch of a magazine, workshops for the whole family, discussions with exhibition guides and much more. For all the details, go to the CCA website at www.cca.qc.ca.

The Spotlight on Architecture tour routes are made possible with the collaboration of the Canadian Centre for Architecture and the support of the following partners: TD Assurance Meloche Monnex, NOVUS Lighting, Hydro-Québec, SICO, Canam Canada, Sun Life Financial and the Government of Québec. The official media collaborators are: Les Affaires newspaper, Métro newspaper and v2com.biz specialty newswire service. Spotlight on Architecture tour routes are a production of SCPGR agency.
