In choosing Maxime-Alexis Frappier, the jury said it was
“impressed by the quality and breadth of work achieved by so young an
architect. Jury members appreciated the clarity of the work, the bold forms,
strong material palette and a clear ability to address site. Several projects
are situated in challenging sites – whether due to the presence of
infrastructure or complex topography. The buildings engage site, but equally
construct their own, and mark a presence in their surrounding context. In
addition he is exceptionally committed to the profession and vigorously
contributes to training future architects both within his firm and as a
university instructor.”

Frappier speaks about architecture as one tells a story, proposing spaces
filled with imagery, poetry and a creativity capable of engaging all
stakeholders.

He is
passionate about promoting the profession and its role in the media. He is an
elected director and board member of the Fonds d’assurance de l’Ordre des
architectes du Québec, a board member of Maison de l’architecture du Québec,
and has acted as a jury member for architectural competitions in Québec. He
also contributes to several radio and television shows in Quebec and is
frequently invited to speak about architecture and creativity in the media.

Frappier is an invited professor at the School of Architecture at Université de
Montréal, a frequent guest critic at both Laval and McGill universities, and a
guest instructor at the University of Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam.

He will
receive his award during the Presidents' Dinner & Awards Gala, Friday, June 7 at 6:30 p.m. during the 2013
RAIC-NSAA Festival of Architecture

taking place
June 5-8, 2013, at the Halifax Marriot
Habourfront.

The RAIC
Young Architect Award recognizes
the achievements of a young architect in excellence in design, leadership
and/or service to the profession. It is intended that this award will inspire
other young architects to become licensed and to strive for excellence in their
work.

RAIC is
a voluntary national association established in 1907 as the voice for
architecture and its practice in Canada. Representing more than 4,600 members,
the RAIC works to affirm that architecture matters, to celebrate the richness
and diversity of architecture in Canada and to support architects in achieving excellence.
