LES RURBAINS

2016 Congress - AAPQ (Association des architectes paysagistes du Québec)

Les Rurbains - Rurban - Rethinking the Boundaries of Landscape

April 1st and 2nd, 2016

A major environmental design event in Québec, the AAPQ’s annual Congress will again this year host speakers, panelists and artists from Québec and abroad to explore a topic that is both complex and inspiring, and that revolves around the issues faced by environmental design professionals.

While the agricultural population in Quebec accounts for just 1% of the total population, and while teleworking makes many professionals independent from major centers, the importance of territories multi-functionality is increasingly recognized, one can observe how several major cities worldwide are declining and how the role of the landscape architect and design professional is being redrawn and is becoming more complex.

Rurban imagines the borders between rural and urban landscapes by exploring interstices landscapes, hybrid and reversed, which while seeking to redefine themselves, carry a history and local culture that need to be asserted in this renewed reality.

An exhibition hall bringing together the network of suppliers connected to environmental design will be accessible for $25 from 10:00 to 15:00 on Friday, April 1st.
