L'année 2014 tire à sa fin, et l'IRAC saisit cette opportunité pour souhaiter à ses membres, partenaires et autres professionnels de l'industrie, de joyeuses fêtes de fin d'année.

La publication de votre bulletin d'informations reprendra normalement le vendredi 9 janvier 2015.





10. I want to be an architect. What will my salary be?
The Globe and Mail
From Jan. 24, 2014: Architects design buildings, but that's only a small part of the job, says Allan Teramura, a RAIC regional director and partner at Ottawa-based Watson MacEwen Teramura Architects. Architects also help to oversee construction, and spend a lot of time doing analysis and studies. Architects can start their day wearing a suit in a boardroom and finish it wearing a hard hat and steel-toed boots on a construction site.

9. Comment l'architecture vint à Steve Jobs
MACG
From Aug. 8, 2014, 2014: L'architecture imaginée pour le bâtiment principal du campus 2 d'Apple, actuellement en plein travaux, n'a pas l'heur de satisfaire l'Institut américain des architectes. « Est-ce que cela doit être un vaisseau spatial ? », interroge un officiel de cet organisme, actuellement en congrès à Durban en Afrique du Sud, en compagnie de 6 000 de ses pairs. Il faut croire que la forme circulaire ne sied pas aux goûts de l'Institut, ni même aux autres architectes avec lesquels Philip Elmer-DeWitt a pu s'entretenir sur place.

6. For millionaire mathematician James Stewart, music will play on after his death
The Globe and Mail
From Sept. 24, 2014: In April of last year, the day before he was to leave for a three-week Asian lecture tour, James Stewart went to his barber for a haircut. "As I stood up to get out of the chair, we all heard — crack!" Mr. Stewart says as if recounting a home-run shot. "It was my left hip breaking." Doctors found the millionaire Toronto mathematician had developed multiple myeloma, a cancer that attacks bone marrow as well as kidneys. They gave him a new hip, and chemotherapy, to no lasting effect. His doctor, a former calculus student, tells him he has less than a year to live.

5. Sur la scène architecturale, le Canada est un pays fascinant
Journal Métro
From Sept. 24, 2014: Craig Dykers n'a plus besoin de présentation dans la communauté architecturale. Récipiendaire du World Architecture Award et du Prix Mies van der Rohe de l'Union européenne, il aurait toutes les raisons de jouer au «starchitect». Son enviable portfolio compte notamment la conception de la bibliothèque d'Alexandrie, en Égypte, le nouveau pavillon muséal du mémorial pour le 9/11 à New York et le sublime Opéra et ballet national d'Oslo.

4. 14 projets montrant l'architecture du futur
Huffington Post
From June 13, 2014: "Tout grand architecte est — forcément — un grand poète. Il se doit d'être l'interprète original de son temps, son époque, son âge." Ces mots sont de Frank Lloyd Wright, que l'on peut sans conteste classer parmi les architectes de premier plan, et dont la vision d'un design harmonieux et d'un urbanisme innovant ont mené à la création d'une marque d'architecture organique. Certes, il n'était pas que l'interprète de son temps — il était en mesure de prévoir les besoins et désirs d'époques lointaines.
