Backstage with Aedifica

On February 12th, more than forty professionals participated in our Architecture Behind the Scenes event with Ædifica. Over the course of the evening, the firms’ architects shared their thoughts on their varied accomplishments. They presented projects with significant challenges but immense social impact, such as a hospital construction project in Haiti. They also talked about the ups and downs over the course of the lifecycle of a project at the heart of Montreal’s development, the 2-22 Ste-Catherine building. Finally, they discussed their commercial retail business, in which a company’s DNA is reflected in the space it occupies through attentive architectural and design choices.

This evening, the first of its kind in the field of architecture, was a resounding success. We brought professionals, business people, artists and artisans together to discover another cultural endeavour, architecture.
