The Canadian Architect's Award of Merit Presented To The Reception Pavilion of Québec's National Assembly

Dec 02, 2016

Gagnon Letellier Cyr Ricard Mathieu & Associés architects (GLCRM) and Provencher_Roy Architects, collaborated for the project, are the proud recipients of Canadian Architect's 2016 Award of Merit for their distinctively designed Reception Pavilion of Québec’s National Assembly. The award was presented during the magazine’s 49th Awards of Excellence gala, held in Toronto.

Distributed along an encircling ramp along the entrance of the reception pavilion, are spaces dedicated to security, reception, services and teaching, as well as commission rooms. They are anchored around a central place that symbolizes the democratic tradition of the National Assembly. In agreement with Matthieu Geoffrion, Architect and Partner, Provencher Roy, this architecture grants “citizens access to a bold and impressive learning space”, thus truly symbolizing democracy.
