QUALIFICATIONS AND PROFILE

Marie is an architecture intern and studied at Laval University in Quebec City. During an exchange in Germany, she learned more about urban design and appreciated the simplicity and rigour of German architecture: Less is more! During her master’s degree, she became interested in urban design and environmental acoustics in architecture.

As a globetrotter, Marie enjoys learning about new cultures through architecture. What she likes most about this discipline is the teamwork. She believes that together we can achieve great things. Marie is very conscientious, professional, and strives for precision and understanding of what she designs.
