Best of Quebec Architecture 2009
We in the US hear plenty about the AIA's awards of festivals, but not so much about our neighbors up north. As we've seen in Dwell over the last few years, our Canadian compatriots have a lot going on in the realm of modern architecture. The professional association L'Ordre des Architectes du Quebec recently presented their 2009 Awards for Excellence in Architecture, which included a prize specifically dedicated to projects that did not exceed $150,000. This year's prize for an outstanding and affordable residence went to architect Paul Bernier, who lives in the home he designed, along with his wife Joëlle Thibault and their family.
