Lecture Series Poster

The Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Architects (NLAA) are hosting a public annual Lecture Series featuring national and international architects and designers.

The 2014 Fall Lecture Series features three architects or urban planners from various backgrounds and design perspectives that pertain to architectural and urban design issues in Newfoundland and Labrador.

The second lecture of the series is on November 13 at 7:30 pm in the LSPU Hall beginning in the Second Space for informal discussion and then continuing to the theatre at 8:00 pm. The lecture is free and open to the public. All are welcome.

The Lecture Series was created, as a mandate of the Public Awareness Committee of the NLAA, with the intention
of increasing the awareness of architecture and of our built environment in Newfoundland and Labrador as well as setting the stage for a designed based dialogue about the cities, towns and outport communities across the province. Each lecturer is chosen based on their respective portfolios of work and research that is related to the current built environment in Newfoundland and Labrador. By sharing with us their ideas and designs for similar issues the hope is that this series can engage the public in a discussion about the future of our built environment in Newfoundland and Labrador.

NOVEMBER 13, 2014 – LECTURE 3 RENéE DAOUST of DAOUST LESTAgE INC.

The third and final lecturer of the NLAA Public Lecture Series is Renée Daoust of the Montreal based firm Daoust Lestage Architecture and Urban Design.

Daoust Lestage Inc. has been actively involved in the fields of architecture and urban design throughout Canada since 1988. The team was assembled to offer a full range of multidisciplinary expertise including comprehensive planning, urban design, landscape architecture, architecture, interior design, industrial and furniture design. Being concerned with design at all scales, from the city to the object, Daoust Lestage Inc. strives to bridge the limitations of traditional design practices and overcome the boundaries between these various disciplines within design.The firm approaches projects with a careful understanding of the space or the site’s historical and current characteristics in order to anchor the proposed interventions into the intrinsic qualities of their surroundings. The firm favors projects that, while inspired from established archetypes, are built with a resolutely contemporary language and are derived from a varied nature and scope. As witnessed by numerous urban design and architectural awards garnered at the provincial, national and international levels, Daoust Lestage Inc. displays a clear commitment to the creation of quality environments at both urban and architectural scales.

Renée Daoust graduated from the University of Montreal with a Bachelor of Architecture as well as a Master of Urban Design. Her dual training in architecture and urban design affords her the ability to oversee large and small projects as a principal of the firm Daoust Lestage Inc. She has been named a Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, is a member of the Development Committee for the Canadian Centre for Architecture, has served as President of the Board of the Festival International des Jardins de Metis and as a Member of the Toronto Waterfront Design Review Panel.

She has frequently lectured as well as recently co-directing a workshop at the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Ms. Daoust is one of only a few women to assume a leadership role in the architectural and urban planning community. She is part of a team, together with her partner Réal Lestage and a well-established staff, that contributes to the creation of spaces of varied scales through thoughtful multidisciplinary reflection.
