4th Architectural Marathon

Montreal, Canada

L'Ordre des architectes du Québec (OAQ)

The Ordre des architectes du Québec presents its 4th Architectural Marathon — 
a special event for thosewho are passionate about architecture


Montreal, Canada, 2011-04-07 - The Ordre des architectes du Québec (OAQ) invites the public to the 4th Architecture Marathon, a popular event that unveils, through short dynamic presentations, the architectural projects and architects who have been honoured at this year’s OAQ Awards of Excellence in Architecture. From 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on April 30, in the Auditorium of the Grande Bibliothèque, the architects will rise to the challenge of describing the process and some comical highlights surrounding the completion of their projects in lively eight-minute presentations while seducing participants who can cast a vote for their favourite project among those presented vying for the Loto-Québec People’s Choice Award (the architectural choice of adults) and the Joli-Cœur Lacasse Youth and Architecture Vision Award.

Members of the public will also have a chance to talk to the architects one on one in the entrance hall of the library which will also house the brand new exhibition Parcours littéraire d’une architecture gagnante (Literary Journey of a Winning Architecture) featuring impressive photos, plans and drawings of winning projects, accompanied by miniature mock-ups that are sure to captivate little ones. A companion book including describing texts is available for consultation throughout the exhibition and can also be purchased in bookstores.

The exhibition and book are showcasing 24 outstanding architectural achievements. This sample, brimming with vitality, is a collection of veritable architectural gems of every imaginable kind: from amazing shapes for vacation homes and weekend getaways and imaginatively designed residential and commercial interior layouts to rebuilt and restored theatres and inventive industrial buildings. Last but not least, at the end of the Literary Journey, architecture and literature come together as the architects reveal the names of the authors and literary works — presented in glass cases displays — that have inspired them and fuelled their creative spirit. The exhibition runs from April 12 to August 28 (address: 475 De Maisonneuve Blvd East, Montreal).

The exceptional partners who fervently support these public and cultural events surrounding the OAQ Awards of Excellence are : TD Assurance Meloche Monnex (principal), Bibliothèques et Archives nationales du Québec, the Canada Council for the Arts, Novus, Sico, Sun Life Financial Insurance, Canam Canada, Hydro-Québec, Loto-Québec and MP Reproductions. Supporting medias are Les Affaires and Métro newspapers and specialized press wire v2com.biz.

Since 1978, the Awards of Excellence in Architecture have shone the spotlight on the vital contribution of Quebec architects to our built environment. These awards presented by the Ordre des architectes du Québec identify and showcase the best architectural projects by Quebec architects at home and abroad. The awards, which are presented not only to architects but also to their clients, contribute to accentuate the synergy that is necessary to produce quality work.
