Claude Cormier
Architecte paysagiste

Claude Cormier’s work challenges ordinary perceptions of the world, opening eyes to new possibilities and generating an appetite for the extraordinary. Rendering visible the invisible of the everyday, his projects seek to reawaken the joy of phenomena through an apparent simplicity that is complex, but not complicated. Over the years, he has acquired a solid reputation as a prolific designer, noted for his originality and creativity. Working in tandem with teams of other urban design professionals, Claude has demonstrated an innovative, imaginative capacity for problem solving. He approaches each obstacle as a challenge, each new constraint as a stimulus for fresh creativity.  Claude is a dedicated and sensitive team player, for which he has gained the respect of clients and colleagues alike.

Claude Cormier studied History & Theory of Design at Harvard University, Landscape Architecture at the University of Toronto, Agronomy at the University of Guelph, and established the firm Claude Cormier et Associés in Montreal in 1994. Over the years, the firm has been privileged to work on major public work in Montreal, Toronto ant the USA and has received over 75 awards. In 2010, the Harvard University Graduate School of Design organised an exclusive retrospective exhibition of the firm “Colour is Not a Decoration”. In 2009, Cormier was Knighted to the Ordre National du Québec, the province’s highest distinction for individuals who have contributed to the development and leadership of Quebec. Cormier was also selected as an Emerging Voice for North America by the Architectural League of New York, as well as one of 14 international designers advancing the design field by Fast Company Magazine. Last year the firm was invited by Phaidon Press to be featured in a publication as one of the top 30 worldwide Landscape architects in the world.
