Introducing our six speakers

Once again this year, Circuit Index-Design presents a series of fascinating speakers who will discuss topics of particular interest to design and architecture professionals. Our theme for 2017 is balance. Four sub-themes will be covered by our speakers on September 14: materials; environment and technology; human resources; and creativity. Here is an overview of the program.
WELL Certification: Being Well, Working Well
Metro-work-sleep: most workers spend 90% of their time indoors. You have a remarkable power: the ability to improve your staff’s well-being and productivity. That’s why there’s WELL, the first comprehensive building certification program focused exclusively on the health and well-being of occupants.

Our two experts – Maude Pintal, sustainable development project manager at Ædifica, and Francis Huneault, interior designer with Menkès Shooner Dagenais LeTourneux Architectes – will discuss some real-world examples to explain the benefits of WELL certification.
Urban Agriculture and Design: Creating Spaces that Breathe
Edible landscaping, green densification, local sourcing, urban greening, self-sufficiency. These terms are more than just buzzwords: they’re now fully fledged parts of the design and architecture vocabulary. Manuel R. Cisneros, an architect with Sid Lee Architecture, will discuss the benefits of integrating agriculture into design projects, as well as the latest trends in the field. At a time when cities are paved as far as the eye can see, urban agriculture is opening a path to cultivating beauty and human health in urban settings. Now it’s up to you to design the city of tomorrow.
Learning to Love the Pitch
Ah, the pitch. The presentation that everything else depends on, the one that keeps you up at night right up to the big day. Some people are born to pitch, others only get there with plenty of blood, sweat and tears – there’s no way around it. There’s no escaping it: the pitch is a crucial part of the creative world. Might as well learn to love it!

Communications and media coach Jacques Marsan will share the keys to mastering the pitch, including verbal and non-verbal language, strategies for capturing and keeping your audience’s attention, and writing a coherent, inspired and inspiring presentation.

 

Yes, Creativity and Productivity Can Co-exist
The rise of co-working spaces has redefined workspace paradigms. More than ever, employees are demanding modern, elegant and agile workspaces that offer flexibility and mobility. Your mission as a creative mind: improve workers’ quality of life, cut property management costs and increase efficiency and productivity. No small task!

Chantal Ladrie and Joanne Imperatori will present the key elements to consider when designing a work environment, as well as proven strategies for optimizing space and resources.

To attend these presentations, register here. Don’t miss this annual design gathering – it’s not just for designers and vendors, but for design enthusiasts. It’s a forum where discussion is encouraged, ideas are freely shared and design visions are redefined.

BALANCE

For the first time,
the Circuit will have a theme: Balance.

In design, everything is a question of balance. Embarking on a creative endeavour means walking a fine line between flexibility and rigour. It’s all about finding the centre of gravity between extremes: quality and quantity, convention and innovation, efficiency and deliberation, productivity and creativity.

Circuit Index-Design is for the city’s masters of balance – not only design and architecture professionals, but anyone with a passion for beauty and novelty. It is for bold people who like to flirt with chaos without ever losing control.
