Text description provided by the architects. With this project, Mohawk College envisioned a place that celebrates First Nations, Métis, and Inuit culture within the everyday experience of the college campus and honors 15,000 years of Indigenous history on this territory. Developed through an inclusive and iterative community consultation process, the HOOP Dance creates a unique outdoor space with deep layers of meaning woven into the fabric of its elements.

Text description provided by the architects. Event Hall is located on the border of the town in a confusing environment made of architectural wanderings constituting a dissonant heteroclite system. The project doesn’t take elements of this existing situation but assumes its ability to drive a new ambition in this district. It dissolves the massive volumetry within a system where the scale is decomposed, and the relation to the building is changing. The ground treatment participates in this device by avoiding large asphalt surfaces in favor of several mineral and vegetable materials.

From the architect. From cultural requalification to urban identification Implanted in the district of lower Joinville on the avenue of General Gallieni, the municipal School of dance in Joinville-le-Pont is a response to the cultural approach of the town.

The Avenue du General Gallieni as a future Metropolitan Avenue is a busy main road; its traffic is intense, noisy, but the vibrant living environment brings a growing centrality on this thoroughfare. The dance school is implanted in a heterogeneous streetscape, ranging from more or less recent apartment blocks and well preserved pavilions.

From the architect. Located between the listed historic tramway depot and housing along Kopernikusstrasse, the compact buil- ding provides ideal conditions for rehearsal. The Oper’s approx. 50 professional dancers and the ballet school’s 55 students have at their disposal two ballet rooms with full-size stage dimensions, three smaller practice rooms as well as changing rooms, rest rooms, a physiotherapy room and an apartment for guest artists.
