In response to William Couture's graduation project Deconstructing the street: an urban imaginary, Carole Lévesque, professor at UQÀM's School of Design, will present her methodology of urban exploration. Through an overview of her most recent work, she will introduce a method articulated through the generative relationship between drawing and walking practices.

Among other things, Professor Lévesque will present her research on the urban vagueness (le vague urbain): a place that generates resilience and anchors for cities in transformation. Her unique take on the architectural representation of leftover urban spaces will be shown as a means of challenging what seems to be generally considered as the “adequate urban landscape.”

This event is part of the MDES22 Research-Creation Show.

How can you participate? Attend in person (note, there is a maximum of 25 people permitted in the space) or online by registering for the Zoom meeting or watching live on YouTube
