Lemay wins American Architecture Prize top honours

October 6, 2017

Lemay is delighted to have won its third American Architecture Prize (AAP), this time in the Industrial category, with its design of a corporate workspace for leading Quebec-based construction firm Pomerleau.

Located near an existing natural environment, the building is configured to frame views of the forest and minimize the adjacent highway. Its three wings establish a central core that creates an inner courtyard and promotes cohesiveness among the building’s users.

A transdisciplinary team from Lemay provided services in architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, sustainable development, urban design and urban planning. The American Architecture Prize honours designs in the disciplines of architecture, interior design, and landscape architecture with the goal of advancing the appreciation of architecture worldwide.

Two other Lemay projects earned 2017 AAP recognition with honourable mentions: the spectacular Paquet Wharf (also in Lévis) and the harmoniously integrated Bibliothèque de Montmagny.

Lemay's much-awarded Bibliothèque du Boisé won two American Architecture Prizes in 2016 - one for Institutional Architecture and one for Cultural Architecture.
