La Presse
Imaginez qu'au Musée de la civilisation, les enfants ne s'amusent plus au sous-sol, mais dans un espace lumineux. Que la cour intérieure soit couverte et accessible à l'année. Que le bois réchauffe le béton et le verre. Le professeur d'architecture Jacques Plante a l'habitude de soumettre ce genre d'exercice à ses étudiants: proposer leur vision du Manège militaire, du terrain sous les bretelles de l'autoroute Dufferin-Montmorency et, cette année, du Musée de la civilisation, agrandi de l'intérieur. Histoire de brasser la cage.

Canadian architect boosts the über-efficient home
The Globe and Mail
Architect Terrell Wong of Stone's Throw Design is certainly passionate when it comes to sustainable/green architecture. More recently, she's found a new — and related — love in the "very fledgling industry" based around the German Passive House movement, a relatively new, ultra-strict set of energy-efficiency guidelines first put to the test in Darmstadt in 1990.
