In December, our 51st annual Canadian Architect Awards of Excellence once again celebrated the country’s best new architecture, recognizing leading design from across Canada. The city of Montreal — and the province of Quebec — were once again well-represented at the 51st awards. This week, our editor Elsa Lam invited to discuss Montreal’s best new architectural highlights on Breakfast Television Montreal in an engaging segment that aired on February 4.
Lam joined the Breakfast Television Montreal crew to discuss the three Montreal projects that were highlighted in the Awards of Excellence; the new paddock for F1 Grand Prix du Canada by Les Architectes FABG (Award of Excellence), the “Aménagement du musée et du dôme de la basilique de l’oratoire Saint-Joseph du Mount-Royal” by Atelier TAG and Architecture49 in consortium (Award of Merit), and the new Insectarium de Montréal by Kuehn Malvezzi, Pelletier de Fontenay, Jodoin Lamarre Pratte with Atelier le Balto (Award of Merit).
Lam was also joined by Architecture49’s Principal Senior Architect James Bridger and Les Architectes FABG’s Associate Éric Gauthier. The trio discussed the award-winning projects, as well as the evolving design culture of Montreal, Quebec, and Canada.
