Founded in 1988 by Gilles Saucier and André Perrotte, Saucier + Perrotte Architectes is a multidisciplinary practice that is internationally renowned for its institutional, cultural, and residential projects. Saucier + Perrotte’s highly acclaimed buildings have been published the world over, reflecting the office’s status as one of Canada’s premier design firms.
If we were to identify one consistent source of inspiration in S+P’s work for the past three decades, that would be landscape. Indeed, the firm has been digging urban and rural landscapes to create architectures that are at once anchored in their physical context, but also to a broader social and cultural topography. This relation to the territory goes beyond a pure celebration of so-called natural elements or the expression of a regional architecture. In fact, S+P’s work is characterized by a constant re-interpretation of landscape in relation to architecture. In its work, geology, topography and vegetation are inextricably linked to the conceptualization of architectural projects.
