The Association of Landscape Architects of Quebec is pleased to announce the program of its annual conference under the theme Degeneration / Regeneration - the temporal horizon of landscape, presented as part of the 50th anniversary of the AAPQ at Marché Bonsecours, Montreal, March 27th and 28th.
Going beyond the concept of sustainable development, the programming developed by the AAPQ explores resilience and regeneration of the landscape and promises to yield reflection and debate on current issues related to the development of the planet. The 2015 AAPQ Congress also enables planning and design professionals, elected officials, and representatives of citizens and municipal organizations, to look back on many innovations related to development and planning.
While staying in line with the reality of Quebec, Degeneration / Regeneration will be a great way for international speakers that have developed practices that explore the processes and dynamic relationships in which landscapes evolve and take shape. The lectures and round tables presented will touch on experiments involving both technical and scientific aspects in the design process, as a view of planning on a global scale, as cultural and identity implications of landscape. Simultaneous French-English interpretation will be provided during all presentations.
AAPQ 50 Years On - Heading towards 2017
To celebrate half a century of AAPQ, Atelier 50 > 50 will measure the footprint of landscape architecture and its landmark projects over the past 50 years in Quebec. The exercise will involve, among others, assessing the quality of three landscape projects from their design and evolution over time. The observations that emerge will serve as a basis for reflection to establish some of the design themes of the 2017 World Summit in Montreal, this large gathering at which Quebec, Canadian and international landscape architecture associations will participate.
New this year, the sonore environment of the congress will be created by Antoine Bédard / Montag, whose artistic practice is at the intersection of music and the environment. Moreover, as usual delegates can partake in traditional cocktails, networking and trade show, renamed the Research and Development Fair this year.
