PUSHING THE LIMITS OF WOOD: FROM OPPORTUNITY TO INNOVATION

For designers, the integration of wood in architectural projects is synonymous with opportunities. Wood is a choice material, especially when creating biophilic designs with end-user comfort in mind, however it can be challenging. This COARCHITECTURE conference will showcase various case studies including CNESST’s head offices, and illustrate major projects the firm has executed that push the limits of design integrating wood.

11:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.

HERITAGE AND AUGMENTED ARCHITECTURE – FROM ONE SIDE OF THE ATLANTIC OCEAN TO THE OTHER

The requalification of historic buildings, regardless of when they were built, offers both opportunities and challenges. It paves the way to explore new perspectives for sustainable development and the adaptation of heritage sites to meet contemporary needs and desires. It is based on this premise that the Patriache group of agencies have led and executed successful projects of various scales and historical periods, for heritage buildings both in Quebec and Europe, including the renown Cathedral of Notre-Dame-de-Paris.

1:30 p.m. - 2:15 p.m.

HOSPITALITY REINVENTED: WOOD’S CONTRIBUTION TO THE NEW REALITIES IN SPACE PLANNING

This presentation will cover designing social spaces in an era that has experienced a pandemic and physical distancing. Discover how hotels, bars, restaurants, and even offices are pivoting and providing new user experiences. Stephan and Elsa, STGM Architecture Practice Leaders in Design, will share a number of inspirational case studies, showcasing lessons learned in design and architecture.

2:30 p.m. - 3:15 p.m.

CIRCULAR DESIGN: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES

The LAB ÉCOLE is a unique case study, that deconstructs a conventional school and transforms it with the scale of a child in mind. The building is distinctly divided into small houses located around an outdoor courtyard and united by glazed access ways. Circular architecture becomes a viable opportunity in this project which embraces the sensitive relationship to the territory by drawing inspiration from vernacular architecture, and by using local, raw, or recycled materials. The presentation will be followed by a deep dive on the value of secondary materials, the processes of retransformation, as well as the responsibility of the designer, in accordance with the ESPACE SECOND collective manifesto.

4:15 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
