The Atlas of Research on Exemplarity in Architecture and the Built Environment, in collaboration with Canadian Architect magazine, presents all the projects, buildings and places awarded since 1968 on a single interactive map and in a visual gallery of over 500 items.
A new classification system by typological categories allows for more precise queries in the database. A table of “unlocated items” collects cases that cannot appear on the map because they are private residences or unbuilt award-winning projects by students.
This corpus was compiled in coordination with Elsa Lam, chief editor of Canadian Architect magazine, and the data was collected by the team of M.Arch. students led by Lucas Ouellet at the Université de Montréal: Charles Cauchon and Anna Zakharova.
The realization of this map and the entry of data in the AREA system is funded by the Canada Research Chair in Architecture, Competitions and Mediations of Excellence directed by Jean-Pierre Chupin (https://crc.umontreal.ca/en/ ), as well as by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).
