A mirror for society: MU Architecture

Charles Côté of Montreal-based MU Architecture on getting contractors to use new construction technologies and working in different contexts around the globe.

 

One of the strengths of your firm is your ability to apply new building technologies to your projects. How do you convince clients and contractors to  use these new applications?

MU Architecture constantly tries to improve upon traditional construction techniques. Since projects always develop with the collaboration of different trades, it is vital to be well surrounded. The contractor plays a key role in the realization of the project. He must give attention to details and be open to exploring new methods of construction. When we design a project on spec, the contractor must be prepared to take a lot of time and to make sacrifices. In turn, we as architects must be very receptive to the new industry methods and the new building techniques of the sub-trades.

 

On your website, you say that  “Architecture always was and always will be a mirror for society.  ” Both you and your co-founder, JeanSébastien Herr, acquired an enormous amount of experience abroad in Vienna, Barcelona and Dubai. What does the architecture of those cities reflect about those societies?

Our experiences in those cities were incredible, since they allowed us to see other existing possibilities. Every nation has a relationship and a comprehension of architecture unique to itself. In the same manner, some cultures give a function to culinary, sculpture, or painting, a certain level of importance. The cities we have lived in all have a privileged relationship with the art of architecture. They all use that art to mark time, display national sentiment or as a mark of global ambition. The methods and techniques of construction vary from one country to the next. Taking into consideration the culture, the climate and the history, we make it our homework to adapt and preserve that cultural diversity.
