Coordinated by the French Embassy in Canada and the Institut Français, along with the French Consulates in Moncton, Quebec, Toronto, Vancouver and the schools of architecture in those cities, the aim of Vis-a-Vis Architecture is to show the diversity of architectural knowledge, cultures, and practices in France and in Canada, and to foster a dialogue between the major stakeholders of our two countries.

From September 21, six internationally renowned French architects will share their reflections on the theme of sustainable architecture.



Among them, Jakob+MacFarlane, Edouard François, Didier Faustino, Jean-Philippe Vassal and Catherine Mosbach.

Beyond the professional contacts resulting from these exchanges, this project also seeks to open itself to the public by having them discover the most current ideas on the subject.
