Previously, he had been involved as a research assistant in various research activities including the Hybridlab Design Research Laboratory at the University of Montreal followed by the Chair in Landscape and Environment (CPEUM) of this same institution. His expertise in visual programming, photography and digital capture technologies led him to develop an interest in the psychology of environmental experience in urban settings, the development of co-ideation/creation tools and collaborative processes in design and planning. His research experience also extends to presenting novel research results in international conferences and articles.

Chloé Lévesque

Holder of a master degree in architecture at the University of Montreal, Chloé Lévesque is a publishing consultant at the UNESCO Chair in Urban Landscape (CUPUM). As part of her graduate studies, she is expanded her reflections on the theme of “collective joy” in cities or how architecture can promote such a behavior in the urban citizen. Before this, she obtained her Bachelor of Science in architecture at the same institution, where she had the opportunity to complete her degree as part of an international exchange program at the École technique supérieure d’architecture de Barcelone (Spain). Taken together, this experience and her fields of interest are leading her to probe the relationship that architecture and urban territory hold with the lifestyles and ways of dwelling in the cities.
