« Vis-à-vis Architecture » series
Organized by the Embassy of France in Canada and the Institut Français, in collaboration with the Consulates General of France in Moncton, Québec, Toronto, Vancouver and with local architecture schools, Vis-à-vis Architecture aims not only to showcase the diversity of expertise, culture, and architectural practices in France and in Canada, but also to establish rich dialogue between the key architectural players in our two countries.
For this second edition of Vis-à-vis Architecture, we wanted to focus our exchanges as closely as possible on the urban planning issues faced by the project’s partner cities. From September 21st to November 30th, 2012, ten French urban planning experts will cross Canada, stopping to take part in discussions to be held in Halifax, Quebec City, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Waterloo, Winnipeg, and Vancouver.
