  7. Close Up on [FURNI] VBS.tv did a small video interview on Mike Giles of Furni. He does a lot of wood work. I had a chance to work at Furni for a day and use the laser cutter. Seeing he is good friends with the person I am doing my internship with. Blog So if your in the mood, buy one of their clocks for yourself or a present for someone Please check him out. INSIDER INFO: He is also working on Hi-Fi headphones. It is a concept form at the moment. I will tell you more or post pictures when I see the finish product.

  8. Does anyone know what the status is on the construction that was being done in the Olympic Stadium tower? http://www.busac.com/index.php?lang=an&sect=3&offset=0&region=5&id=5733552 Judging by the 3D tour http://www.busac.com/previz/on the Busac Real Estate site, it looks like they are planning to remove some of the concrete panels on the side of the tower and replace them with more windows. Thus creating 20 floors of office space. The floor spaces in the tour were built with very high ceilings and windows that were much to high. I wonder if and how many floors they might be adding to fill up these large rooms. If anyone has anymore info on this project or pictures of construction of any part of the Olympic Complex I would be very interested. All Pictures are from Busac Real Estate www.Busac.com

  12. Bonjour, en repassant près de l'ÉTS cette fin de semaine, je me suis rappelé d'une question que je voulais vous poser, en esperant que quelqu'un a de l'information là-dessus! Je me demandais si vous saviez ce qui se passe avec le gros terrain vague cloturé situé juste au nord de l'ÉTS, entre les rues Peel, Saint-Jacques, Jean d'Estrées et Notre-dame Ouest... C'est un vraiment gros terrain et qui est un ''prime spot'' tant qu'à moi! Quelqu'un aurait quelconque info là-dessus? Merci à l'avance!

    RCMP Info

    This is embarrassing. I know it's wrong, but I hope someone can help me, and you are the best informed people I know in Montreal. I left an university library book to be photocopied at Copie 2000 on Sherbrooke Ouest at Peel. Apparently some author made some kind of copyright claim and the RCMP took all of Copie 2000's books for an investigation. Now they (Copie 2000) say they do not have my book and are still waiting for them to be returned by the police. Also they do not want to give me any information about the case at all and seem quite upset and a little bit rude. I wonder if there is any website where I can learn of the suit or if the RCMP would be willing to inform me about it in some way so I can estimate a return date. Is this information public?
  16. I saw Total has ads in the metro now. Saw some of them at the Atwater stop. I wonder if they are just for F1 or they are planning on coming to Montreal and setting up stations. If they are setting up shop, I guess Power Corp wants to get back into the petrol business. Seeing they use to own Shell or something and they own a 4.0% stake in Total (through Pargesa Holding S.A) Info (Wiki)
  17. https://www.facebook.com/archibranches About Animation : Marc-André B. Carignan Production : AGLA Médias www.aglamedias.com Description Grands artisans de l'effervescence de nos cités, les architectes modèlent notre cadre de vie et lèguent une identité, une singularité à nos paysages urbains. Archi-Branchés tient à rendre hommage à ces hommes et femmes visionnaires, trop ignorés du grand public. À travers l'odyssée du journaliste Marc-André B. Carignan, le magazine convie à l'exploration des grands projets immobiliers, les plus novateurs du Québec. Chaque émission est ainsi consacrée à un architecte et à la visite exhaustive de sa dernière création. Une approche originale qui sonde ses inspirations, questionne son imaginaire et sa vision de la ville de demain. Une formidable opportunité pour le public de s'imprégner de leur ingéniosité, de leur avant-gardisme, mais aussi de mieux saisir les enjeux cruciaux en matière d'habitat et d'urbanisme. Chaque épisode d'Archi-Branchés représente bien plus qu'une visite de bâtiment, il propose plutôt d'en dresser une véritable biographie. Quel est l'historique du site, du quartier ? Quel est le rayonnement culturel, social ou économique de l’œuvre sur son environnement ? Quelles sont les pistes de développement envisageables ? C'est toute la portée spatio-temporelle du monument qui est ainsi mise en scène. Le portrait du projet ne se limite pas au cadre de sa silhouette : il en trace les perspectives et raconte son histoire.

  18. Projet situé sur le terrain de stationnement entre la rue Savignac et Saint-Denis. Je crois que le petit immeuble de 3 étages qui sépare le stationnement du Métropol est préservé. C'est sur le site de l'Atelier RFA, sans info. Mais c'est vraiment un beau projet qui aiderait grandement le coin avec le CHUM et le Métropol!

  19. Why isn't there a directory for all the judges in Quebec? There is a directory for Judges but on Wikipedia and it is for Judges from the 19th century. They hold a job that is paid by tax dollars. Those people should have their name posted online and with their work related email address. Same goes for all other public employees. Why isn't there any transparency? I would love to see every penny of the tax dollars and where it goes. What is funny, even the politicians don't even put their email addresses online. It is so much fun, trying to find the proper inbox to send them a letter. [update]: I so far found 14 judges that serve here in Montreal. That is a small number from the 89 - 101 judges. Jean Charest National Assembly (Only one I could find) Liberal Party (I am not sure if it is the proper one) Francois Legault National Assembly (Found on Facebook) Coalition (You will most likely get an email back from their info email address.) Pauline Marois National Assembly (Found on Facebook) Parti Québécois (I am not sure if it is the proper one)
  20. Source: Houzz (Le copier-Coller est tellement long, ça ne me tente pas de l'éditer, allez voir l'article pour une lecture plus facile) Residents of Montreal didn't UNESCO's crowning it the City of Design in 2006 to reaffirm their love affair with their city. Referred to as Canada's cultural capital, Montreal can claim bragging rights to a summer full of international festivals along with world-renowned architecture and stylish bars and restaurants. As you read through this guide, put together by myself and fellow Montreal native Laura Garner, visualize yourself admiring the unique art installations of each metro station, walking through more than 32 kilometers (20 miles) of tunnels in the Underground City or riding in a horse-drawn carriage through the cobblestone streets in the very European area of Old Montreal. No matter how you choose to get somewhere in the city, Montreal always has a way of surprising you along the way. More city guides for design junkies This view of the St. Lawrence river shows off the beauty of the Montreal skyline at night and includes the Bell Center (where the Montreal Canadiens play hockey). This photo was taken from one of the bridges that connects Cité du Havre (a strip of land where the Habitat 67 community is located; see below) to the Île Sainte-Hélène, which houses La Ronde amusement park and is home to the popular indie music festival Osheaga and the Formula 1 racetrack. A couple notes on the information that follows: We have included the nearest metro stop and have highlighted design destinations by neighborhood. Must-Sees Mount Royal Park: A 200-hectare (about 500-acre) park in the heart of the city Location: From Côte-de-Neiges Road to Park Avenue, between avenue des Pins and Voie Camillien Houde (metro: Mont-Royal) Noteworthy: Lookout points throughout the park offer the best views of the city, day or night. Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted (the designer of New York's iconic Central Park), Mount Royal is a year-round congregating spot for residents and tourists alike. Summertime brings long walks around the pond and picnics under the trees, while winter offers ice skating. If you're in Montreal on a Sunday in the summertime, head to the Sir George-Étienne Cartier monument to see the free, unofficial event known as the Tam-Tams, where hundreds of people gather to drum and dance under the sun. by Laura Garner » Habitat 67: A stunning 12-story apartment complex designed by architect Moshe Safdie Location: 2600 avenue Pierre-Dupuy (near the casino) Noteworthy: The apartments are designed with lots of privacy, terrace gardens and multiple levels that face the St. Lawrence river.

The interior design, done by the architects at laroche et gagné, is bright and fun and worth a look. Try the breakfast poutine.

  21. Fermeture imminente Les négociations syndicales à l’Hôtel Omni Mont-Royal du 1050 Sherbrooke Ouest ont pris fin avec un échec et la décision par l’administration de fermer l’établissement le 10 décembre 2008. Ceci mettra un terme à une tradition hôtelière qui débuta à cet endroit avec l’hôtel Le Quatre Saisons au moment des jeux olympiques de ‘76. Nous ne savons pas encore ce qui adviendra de l’édifice.
