Marc-André Carignan

With a bachelor’s degree in architecture from McGill University, Marc-André Carignan is one of the few Québec media contributors who specialize in urban development. He shares his passion and expertise on several platforms, including Radio-Canada. He is also a political and municipal affairs columnist.

Additionally, Marc-André collaborates with the most important architectural news source in Québec, Kollectif, and also hosts Archi branchés + Nos Maisons for SAVOIR média (formerly Canal Savoir), a magazine-type program that highlights the work of local architects. He is also a member of the advisory committee for the Québec government’s strategy for Québec architecture.

 

Miles MacGregor (El Mac), Gene Pendon
Maybe it’s too easy a choice but I have always been excited by this homage to an artist whom I greatly appreciate listening to. The monumentality of this work quickly made it a city landmark in the city, like a lighthouse on the ocean. We feel like Leonard Cohen is watching over us, his soul floating over Montréal.
Claude Cormier et Associés
Pink has become a talisman for renowned landscape architect Claude Cormier. He has used this colour for his major creations in Montréal and Toronto, including this one (NATURE LÉGÈRE) at the Palais des Congrès. The colour is a surprising choice, and inevitably attracts attention and enlivens the landscape. The work is now part of the Palais des Congrès’s identity. It has become a wonderful showcase for Montréal creativity, admired by everyone who passes by.
EN MASSE
I could have chosen several works by the EN MASSE collective, but I decided on this one because I developed a particular affection for it over the years, having lived two blocks away from this mural in a former life. I love its playful look and the dichromatic choice by its highly talented creators. It seems to me that EN MASSE has reinvented the Montréal mural.
Patrick Coutu
Montréal’s soccer stadium is indubitably one of the most impressive architectural projects in the last decade in Québec, and this work, “Géologique”, is a perfect complement to the site. It is a logical continuation of the concept evoked by the stadium, which is based on the geology of the site, on layers of rock piled on top of each other (reference to the previous use of the site: a quarry). The work threatens to overwhelm its admirers and its vertical composition is very impressive.
Claude Bettinger
Every time I stroll through the corridors of Place des Arts, I make it a point to look up and admire this audacious work of art. I particularly appreciate how it was skilfully integrated into the architecture of the site, instead of merely being tacked onto the space in a simplistic manner. The piece is noteworthy because it is both inside and outside Place des Arts, allowing it to be admired within two urban contexts, quite distinct from each other.
