Canadian Architect


Critics’ night – La MAQ au Centre Phi

April 05, 2016
Centre Phi, 407 Rue Saint-Pierre, Montréal

La Maison de l’architecture du Québec (MAQ) and the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) are pleased to invite you to an exceptional evening celebrating architectural criticism, featuring the Western world’s top architectural writers. Come and take part in a public conversation between Emmanuel Caille (Paris) and legendary critic Paul Goldberger (New York) for our MAQ Young Architectural Critic Competition gala awards night. This bilingual discussion, which will include the audience, award recipients, and the jury members and architectural critics from Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal, will be moderated by professor Jean-Pierre Chupin.

On 5 April, this special evening will showcase emerging architectural critics, (including some of our competitors), senior editors, such as Paris’s Emmanuel Caille and Toronto’s Elsa Lam, experienced freelancers, including Vancouver’s Adele Weder, and a living legend — Paul Goldberger, who was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his New York Times architectural criticism column (and the author of an all-new biography on Frank Gehry). While the media are often seen as key in promoting the advancement of architecture in our society, they rarely have the chance to speak for themselves. This event will be one such opportunity, and you’re invited to take part in the conversation!
