Eloise Brodeur: Seeking Understanding Through Cows

Eloise Brodeur, “Best Friends” (2017) ~ The cow as a principal subject of painting may seem an odd choice.  But Montreal artist, Eloise Brodeur, has elevated the bovine creature to a sort of muse.   By painting images of her cows against a stark background of a single color, Brodeur suggests to her viewers that there […]

Fairmont canine ambassador program promotes human-animal connection

It’s uncommon to see people flop down on the carpet in an upscale hotel lobby. But at the Fairmont Banff Springs on a Friday morning, a middle-aged woman from Indianapolis and two kids from Montreal are the latest of many to reject decorum when faced with Bear’s charms. The black lab gazes at them with liquid amber eyes while rolling over for a belly rub. It’s all in a day’s work for Bear, a canine ambassador who give travelers a dose of human-animal connection. The Fairmont’s canine ambassador...

Boxy volumes anchor a beautiful home into a rocky cliffside

When Montreal-based firm YH2 Architecture was tasked with the almost impossible feat of building on an incredibly sloped, rocky landscape, it came up with a solution that goes back to the age of time: building blocks. Using the natural landscape to its advantage, the firm constructed the gorgeous House Dans l’Escarpement out of two concrete “boxes,” one vertical and one horizontal. The ingenious design not only let the project expand vertically but also reduced the footprint of the home on its ...

Beyond Snow Tires: Nissan's AWD Altima-te Features Tank Treads

With a snowstorm walloping a large swath of the U.S., more than a few drivers are undoubtedly wishing they'd invested in winter tires. Many have probably resolved to buy more snow-capable vehicles. In that latter category, Nissan has created something that will be tough to beat: The Altima-te AWD, which has been tricked out with continuous-track propulsion, i.e. tank/caterpillar treads. Unsurprisingly, it looks pretty darned fun to drive: Sadly it's not a production model, but a ...

Comedian Excluded From Performing At Montreal Club Because His Hair Style Is “Cultural Appropriation”

Even if the person wearing dreadlocks is not racist himself, the group says, the chosen hairstyle “conveys racism.” It calls cultural appropriation “a form of passive oppression, a privilege to be deconstructed and in particular a manifestation of ordinary racism.” – Toronto Star (CP)

Two moody, tranquil cabins perch above a Quebec forest

Montreal-based firm Nature Humaine has unveiled a beautiful pair of adjoining cabins tucked into a remote forest outside Quebec.

The ozone is finally healing and could be completely repaired by 2060

Finally, some good news about the environment. Earlier this week, the United Nations announced in a report that the ozone layer is on the mend. If the current recovery rate continues, parts of the ozone could be fully repaired by the 2030s. The entire layer — even the highly damaged parts over the North Pole and South Pole — could be completely healed by 2060. The study, Scientific Assessment of Ozone Depletion: 2018, monitors ozone recovery, and it is the latest in a series of reports that the...

Jaw-dropping, thought-provoking imagery brightens up neighborhoods from Melbourne to Reykjavik, showcasing serious talent, technique, and flair. These nine cities do urban art better than anyone else and attract visitors from far and wide to see what masterpieces their o...

An old warehouse is rehabbed into chic apartments in Montreal

A former industrial warehouse in Montreal has been reborn as an airy and modern residential development thanks to the work of local architectural practice Blouin Tardif Architectes.

Dubbed Monument, the renovated building consists of seven contemporary apartments. Located in the h...

Optimism Lost? Or Merely Moved? A Brief History Of World’s Fairs

From the earliest expositions in London and Paris, through the early 20th-century fairs that introduced such American cities as St. Louis, Chicago, Buffalo, and San Francisco to the world, the starry-eyed futurism of the New York fair in 1939, and the coming-out parties of Seattle, (’62), Osaka (’70), Montreal (’67), and post-dictatorship Seville (’92) and Lisbon (’98), World’s Fairs announced that their host cities were open for business and a bright future was coming.

A green-roofed ski cabin blends into the lush Canadian landscape

Wrapped in black-dyed cedar planks and topped with a lush green roof, the Cottage in Sutton appears to meld into the landscape from afar. Montreal-based architecture firm Paul Bernier Architecte designed the 2,400-square-foot residence as a weekend retreat for a family of four avid skiers. Modern yet minimalist, the home prioritizes views of the outdoors, in particular the vistas toward Mount Sutton in the south. Set on a north-south axis, the rectangular home appears to emerge from the slope...

How to Build a Custom Handcrafted Acoustic Guitar from Start to Finish: The Process Revealed in a Fascinating Documentary

Every serious guitarist learns to set up, repair, and maybe even customize their own instruments. It’s economical and fun and gives players insight into how and why their instruments sound the way they do, and how to make them sound better. Some amateur luthiers will even build their own instruments, at least those not famous enough to have custom guitars built for them by famous makers, an honor—maybe not unlike a basketball player having their own shoes—that tells the world they’re at ...

An aging chalet in Canada that was facing demolition has been completely turned around thanks to a stunning renovation led by Montreal-based design studio Alain Carle Architecte.

'I don't like the stress of dying': the game for people who don't want to fight
