The Archifête party, taking place at the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac, was the perfect way to cap off the Conference. OAA members and their guests, as well as industry leaders and other allied professionals, came together for a night of food, drink, music and fun. Since the party followed the SHIFT2019 Infrastructure/Architecture Challenge, there was also the chance to continue the conversation sparked by those project teams’ ideas.
Amidst the fancy poutine and maple-syrup-sweet dessert stations, attendees connected with old friends and made new acquaintances by sitting in chill spaces or dancing up storms on the dancefloor. Highlights included performances by Cello Lounge
, a DJ/string duo that blended classical and contemporary sound—a fitting soundtrack for architects sharing new and innovative ideas in the heart of one of the continent’s oldest European cities.
