Architecture competition Silent Meditation Forest Cabins Honorable mention - NÓS architects

We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the winners of one of our Honorable mentions for the “Silent Meditation Forest Cabins” competition - NÓS architects from Canada!

NÓS architects from Canada

NÓS is a Montreal-based firm founded in 2016 by Gil Hardy and Charles Laurence Proulx. The studio brings together architects, landscape architects, urbanists, researchers and artists from different cultures around common projects. Driven by a contemporary spirit, each project is an opportunity to invent a unique living environment to the measure of its users through a bold yet realistic proposal, incorporating the particularities of a given environment.

Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance what scale have you focused on/preferred, any significant projects where company/ individuals have been involved?

NÓS is involved in a variety of projects ranging from small ephemeral installation to large-scale urban planning interventions. This practice allows constant experimentation where each scale of work informs the other in a complementary way. Recent commissions include ‘’Moving Dunes’’ a temporary installation for the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, and ‘’Union Park’’, a 380 apartments tower located in downtown Montreal, currently under construction.

What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

NÓS sees architecture as a response to today’s challenges in creating places that reflect the spirit of a new generation and its plural identity.

Why do you participate in architecture vision competitions?

NÓS participates in competitions to experiment new processes of design, representation and collaboration in a global contemporary setting.

What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture vision competitions?

Just do it !
