Storyboard on the Landscape
AZURE on Batoche National Historic Site
Our experiential design—exhibition design, architecture, and landscape architecture—project at Batoche National Historic Site in Saskatchewan continues to receive attention, this time from the influential ArchDaily web site.
Just in time for the Canada 150 celebrations, our work at Batoche tells the story of the Métis, one of Canada's indigenous cultures. Batoche is the heartland of the Métis nation; the physical, cultural, and political home of the Métis people.
Branding Heritage Landscapes
To say I am humbled is an understatement. Recently, AZURE Magazine wrote an article about a project Form:Media developed for Batoche National Historic Site (Parks Canada), in Saskatchewan, Canada. This project is an example of the seamless collaborative effort of interpretive planners, architects, landscape architects, and graphic designers working together to interpret an important cultural landscape.

The Winter 2016 issue of Landscape/Paysages explores landscapes touched by time. We find serenity and remembrance among the stones and chestnut trees of Vancouver’s Mountain View Cemetery. We delight in the ephemeral, from the 30 urban seesaws in wintry Montreal to the city’s summer-time upwellings of life in the streets.
John deWolf's article “Branding Heritage Landscapes: Old Places, New Connections” (P40–45) looks at the challenges Form:Media faced when the landscape is considered special because of its historic or cultural significance. His article explores three UNESCO World Heritage Sites—Old Town Lunenburg, the Landscape of Grand Pré, and Red Bay Basque Whaling Station—where integrity and authenticity are key to our understanding of time.
Landscape/Paysages Journal is a bilingual Quarterly publication of the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects. Landscapes/Paysages is the professional journal of landscape architecture in Canada. It presents a Canadian perspective on professional practice and provides a forum to discuss and debate matters related to design, culture and environment, as reflected in our landscapes.
