The Maison de l’architecture du Québec (MAQ) is an independent artist-run centre with the mandate to stimulate creation and reflection in disciplines related to architecture, landscape architecture and urban planning. A non-profit organization, MAQ was launched in 2001 by architects Benoît Dupuis and Jean-Pierre LeTourneux, photographer Alain Laforest and journalist Sophie Gironnay in order to “rally together and inspire those passionate about the way our constructed landscape is created and transformed.” Since 2001, the MAQ, working with its active practitioners, has promoted the development of architectural culture in Quebec and Canada through exhibitions, labs, publications, workshops and, more recently, educational activities. The MAQ is a place for exchange and creation, which breaks through the boundaries between diverse artistic disciplines, from design to sculpture, from literature to the performing arts.
