Dialogues with the Transformative City: The Architecture of Lapointe Magne (1992-2012)

Running from February 27 until April 07, 2013 at Design at Riverside in Cambridge, Ontario, Dialogues with the Transformative City, Lapointe Magne et associés (1992-2012) is the second exhibition and catalogue in the MONOGRAPHIES MAQ Series. This series offers in-depth analysis of the past two decades of work by influential Quebec architects, situating them within a larger international context.

Guest curator Marie-Paule Macdonald (Associate Professor, University of Waterloo School of Architecture) presents an array of benchmark projects by Lapointe Magne et associés including the National Circus School, the Gatineau Sports Centre, and the Institut de tourisme et d’hôtellerie du Québec. These projects represent an important contribution to Canada’s cityscapes and as they “enter into public familiarity, will invite participation and dialogue.”

Dialogues with the Transformative City was conceived and produced by Maison de l’architecture du Québec (MAQ) in collaboration with Lapointe Magne et associés (LMA).

Additionally, Frédéric Dubé from Lapointe Magne et associés and Marie-Paule Macdonald will lecture on Dialogues with the Transformative City on Thursday March 21, 2013 at 6:30pm in Cummings Lecture Hall at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture, located at 7 Melville Street South in Cambridge, Ontario.
