Marc Hallé, an invited FIU Landscape Architecture + Environmental and Urban Design Cejas Scholar, served as professional design advisor and critic to the Graduate Design 2 studio in collaboration with Associate in Design Marta Canavés, during the 2016 spring semester.
The semester studio began with a critical review of the proposed Field Operations Lincoln Road masterplan and proceeded to challenge first year Graduate Design 2 students “to conceive small urban spaces based on a conceptual project narrative to serve as a design framework for addressing contextual fit, scale, site specificity, and [to make] design decisions about material, pattern, planting, urban elements, and program.”
Marc Hallé is a senior associate at Claude Cormier et Associés and is also a lecturer of Landscape Architecture at the McGill University School of Architecture. Trained in both Civil and Environmental Engineering as well as Landscape Architecture, Marc completed his MLA at the University of Toronto in 2005. Marc’s background enables him to carry out an artful execution of technique that is grounded in first principles and a priority for public spaces that are generous and relevant.
