    The art of movement Porsche GT3

    Adornetto notes, «I had the idea to
    make a canvas with a face of a determined
    lion ready to make a good race! The original
    work was done on a canvas of 54 x 54 inches,
    painted with a spatula and knives directly on
    the canvas. I imagined the Beast in [the]
    bright and vivid colors of the Porsche GT3
    collection, an amalgam of Guards Red, Lava
    Orange, Racing Yellow, Miami Blue, Lizard
    Green, and a touch of
    Chalk.» «When Geneviève
    Lauzon, Vice President Marketing and
    Experience Lauzon, asked me to collaborate on
    the new look of their GT3 Cup race car, I
    accepted the invitation with pleasure!”
    says Mr. Adornetto. Adornetto’s work
    is reproduced and wraps on the hood, wings,
    and roof of the GT3 Team Lauzon Autosport,
    driven by Patrick Dussault. The cars with
    this technique add a unique touch to the team
    and help them stand out. The 27-year-old
    Dussault competes for the third year behind
    the wheel of the n77 Lauzon Autosport Porsche
    GT3 Cup. Dussault has shown that he can be a
    serious candidate for the victory this
    season. Dussault achieved a second-place
    podium finish during Speedfest at the
    Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville
    and was runner-up at the Circuit
    Gilles-Villeneuve in Montreal. In September,
    there will be a second stage in Quebec on the
    Mont-Tremblant circuit. Adornetto’s
    work is reproduced and wraps on the hood,
    wings, and roof of the GT3 Team Lauzon
    Autosport, driven by Patrick Dussault. The
    cars with this technique add a unique touch
    to the team and help them stand out.

  • A bridge between the past and the future, La shed

    A bridge between the past and the future, La shed

    In colloquial Québécois French,
    la shed (borrowed from English) is a place
    where we store things that we don’t
    need anymore. It’s also where we would
    go to play and shelter ourselves from the
    rain when we were kids – a familiar
    place that was a part of everyday life. La
    Shed was created for that very purpose: to
    bring architecture back to a human
    level.  Founded by three young
    architects (Sébastien Parent, Yannick
    Laurin, and Renée Mailhot), the firm
    specializes in renovation and the
    transformation of buildings. It quickly
    distinguished itself from the others with its
    approach based on comprehension and
    accessibility. There’s no need to have
    a master’s degree in architecture to
    understand the pure and luminous vision that
    is associated with their
    transformations. The architects use a
    dialogue-based approach to develop a
    relationship, which is a cornerstone of the
    smooth running of the project. The associates
    insist on meeting the client’s demands
    while still proposing an innovative vision.
    After that, it’s a matter of finding
    practical and functional solutions to the
    multiple challenges of building restoration.
    Respecting the past while looking to the
    future, that is precisely what defines this
    firm who established itself through its
    direct contact with the public.  La
    Shed believes that it’s possible to
    hire an architect without breaking the bank,
    and this philosophy led to a very successful
    journey.
