Architects’ Visions

La Maison de l'architecture du Québec
May 6, 2021 ― May 30, 2021

In addition to its regular programming, Livart welcomes partner organizations to its performance spaces.

The MAQ is 20 years old! The Maison de l’architecture du Québec is proud to celebrate its 20th anniversary by inviting the public to discover three important exhibitions on the theme Visions of Architects.

Memory of a drawing: the plastic work of the architect Benoît Dupuis is the subject, for the first time, of an important retrospective.

Snapshot City : or the photographic captures of Atelier Big City’s co-principal partner, Howard Davies, an unrepentant flâneur and humorist. Curator : Alain Laforest.

Architectural parasites : the new and most ferocious photo essay by Olivier Blouin with installation of Dupont Blouin architects, launched to the rescue of the skin of our buildings bristling with domes, heat pumps and other warts.

Bonus : The first drafts of the graphic novel signed by Tangui Robert, architect from Nantes, and François Turcot, poet from Quebec, as part of our 4th Nantes-Montreal International Residency on the theme Cities and Ports.

The Maison de l’architecture du Québec (MAQ) is a unique center in Canada that has been working since 2001 for the recognition of architecture and planning disciplines as major arts but also as essential needs in the life of everyone. Under the direction of Sophie Gironnay and through exhibitions, workshops, publications, residencies, competitions, debates and other initiatives, the MAQ strives to create an encounter between the imagination of the general public and the creators who shape their living environment.
