  • Espace de rêve/Dream home

    2014-2016
    These models, drawings and stories were developped over the course of several months in 2015 through a series of participatory design workshops with over forty artists and thinkers, all with experience in being displaced, sometimes in precarious circumstances. Each dream home represents one person's answer to the question "if I could live anywhere, it would be...". Developed by a team of architects in collaboration with cultural mediators from Exeko and several shelters in Montreal, this project aims first and foremost to create dialogue and reflection around housing in Montreal, a discussion anchored in people’s needs and dreams. The designs were subsequently drafted and interpreted by a team of volunteer architects and interns in preparation for public exhibitions in the late fall of 2015. A new exhibition is planned for February/March 2016.
    Role: co-coordinator, with Suzanne Doucet, architecte.
