Les maisons de l'architecte Pierre Thibault: en symbiose avec la nature
Radio-Canada
Pour lui, l'architecture est une forme de culture. Amoureux des paysages québécois, il conçoit des maisons paysage qui sont en harmonie avec la nature. Respectueux du développement durable et de l'environnement, il s'assure que ses maisons magnifient le paysage et que le paysage magnifie ses maisons. L'architecture est une valeur ajoutée dans l'environnement où il construit, dit-il. Ses maisons étant complètement vitrées, « la fenestration est un tableau en changement perpétuel », avoue Pierre Thibault.

Architect Douglas Cardinal thinks outside the box
The Record
In a landscape dominated by "meagre boxes," Douglas Cardinal's buildings stand out. The celebrated Canadian architect's works swoop and flow, curve and contort in artistic harmony with the natural world around them. "I do not identify with rectilinear forms," Cardinal told an audience at the Kitchener Public Library. "Buildings should be nurturing, caring, loving beings." Best-known among his works are the Canadian Museum of History (formerly the Canadian Museum of Civilization), which stands in Gatineau, QB. across from Parliament Hill, and the National Museum of the American Indian, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

Digital revolution brings new edge to Helsinki museum designs
The Globe and Mail
When it opened in 1997, Frank Gehry's Guggenheim Bilbao demonstrated how computers could reinvent contemporary building. The art museum's complex, irregular forms were designed with software meant for building fighter jets. But in tech terms, 1997 is prehistory, and since then architecture's leading edge has been reshaped by the digital: How buildings are designed, how they are (or can be) made, how we talk about them and even how we think about space.

Architects bring 'intellectual rigour and sensual intuition' to design of new Vancouver Art Gallery
The Vancouver Sun
When the design for the new Vancouver Art Gallery is unveiled this spring, the city will be getting a building designed by Herzog & de Meuron, but not a Herzog & de Meuron building. As a new exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery shows, there is no single Herzog & de Meuron look or style. The company doesn't come up with an idea from a template and plunk it down on a site. The firm's exhaustive research and careful attention to detail produce designs that are surprising and unique, said Bruce Grenville, curator for the exhibition, which is about the Herzog & de Meuron design process.
