Montreal-based architects Renée Daoust and Rachel Stecker will reflect upon challenges and opportunities, from design through realization, and how to maintain the ethos of a project in the face of evolving contexts.


Daoust Lestage Lizotte Stecker remains dedicated to a simple set of profound design values and principles that counter our new anxieties: an attunement to history, a sense that ecological and societal systems demand a multi-scalar response; a fascination with water and vegetation as both settings and design elements; a willingness to intertwine patrimony and the present, ecology and economics. 


“The firm makes architecture by thinking buildings at the scale of cities, and cities at the scale of furniture, engaging our collective spirit amidst the exigencies of civic transformation.” — David Theodore – ARQ199, June 2022
