In These Spaces – The Restoration of the Morrin Centre
Are you curious about science, architecture, artifacts, history, or music? Throughout the In These Spaces project, participants will explore a diverse set of subjects using the Morrin Centre’s spaces as a backdrop. Over the course of five live-streamed events, experts will talk about their field of expertise with our host Peter Black.
Please note: this presentation will be held in French and the question period will be bilingual.
The Restoration of the Morrin Centre
Michel Boudreau has been associated with the Morrin Centre since the late 1980s, when the original campaign to restore the building was launched by the Ville de Québec. The Morrin Centre project stands out for its exemplary approach to restoration ever since its inception. Taking place over 40 years and completed at the end of the 2000s, this noteworthy restoration project is still viewed with pride and admiration by the professionals, managers, donors and, of course, the hundreds of workers who contributed.
Follow the traces of this restoration, and you will never see this building in quite the same way!
Guest – Michel Boudreau
Michel Boudreau was chief architect at Boudreau Fortier Huot from its founding until September 2017, when BFH merged with STGM. Throughout his career, he has specialized in the restoration of historic and heritage buildings. In doing so, he created a personalized approach and developed many contacts overseeing similar projects within the Ministère de la Culture, Parks Canada, the Federal Heritage Buildings Review Office, the Commission des biens culturels du Québec, and many other boards and organizations dedicated to preserving heritage, all of whom recognized the value of his expertise and the quality of his work.
