The City Decoded. 2016

The City Decoded. 2016

The City Decoded is an educational activity introducing kids and their parents to notions of urban design through the assembling and placement of tokens representing different buildings and services on a game board. At the end, each neighborhood is displayed on a small scale model of the city, and a broader discussion on the city’s dynamic and services accessibility can take place. Produced by the Educational team of the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montreal, Canada.

Engineering the Nomadic Model. 2016

In Engineering the Nomadic model, kids with their parents are encouraged to create a small scale model of an ephemeral structure to be installed in a public space using modular tubes and connectors. In the second segment, the families have to work in collaboration using similar techniques to create this time a real scale model. Produced by the Educational team of the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montreal, Canada.

Turn on the Bright Lights. 2016

At the occasion of the Winter solstice, participants created illuminating portable devices that worked as an extension of their own bodies, finding inspiration in the role of light in the urban space in terms of concepts of well-being, social interactions and safety (or the illusion of it). Triangular modules, tie-wraps and battery-charged light stripes were provided to each participants to build their geometrical and crystal-like structures. Produced by the Educational team of the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montreal, Canada.

Form-Folding Factory. 2016

In Form-Folding Factory, participants were invited to experiment with design techniques based on the tradition of origami, and then assemble these kinetic stuctures in order to come up with their own invention - a model, an object or a piece of clothing. Produced by the Educational team of the Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montreal, Canada.

La Pointe Sun Prints. 2015

Exploring the neighborhood of Pointe-Saint-Charles on the lookout for interesting shapes in nature and found objects to create cyanotype prints, while telling stories and singing songs. In collaboration with Pointe-Saint-Charles Art School, Montreal, Canada.

It’s All About Scale. 2012

Choosing a location of their choice outside the community center, kids imagine how this natural space could be a home, and what kind of creature, human, animal or other, could live in the space. In collaboration with Les Ateliers Beaux-Arts du Rivage, Montreal, Canada.
