General note

Raymond Tait Affleck, architect (b at Penticton, BC 20 Nov 1922; d at Montréal 16 Mar 1989). Educated at McGill and in Zurich, Switzerland, he began independent practice in
1953 and in 1955 joined in forming the firm of Affleck, Desbarats, Dimakopoulos, Michaud, Lebensold, Sise, from 1958-70 Affleck, Desbarats, Dimakopoulis, Lebensold, Sise, and from 1970 called ARCOP Associates, Architects and Planners.

While his firm participated in many important projects from St John's (Arts and Culture Centre, 1967) to Vancouver (Queen Elizabeth Theatre, 1955) Affleck is particularly associated with the Montréal developments Place Bonaventure (1964-68), Place Ville Marie (1956-65), and the Maison Alcan (1983, awarded the Prix d'excellence in 1984);

Affleck's concern for the quality of life in a northern climate is expressed in Place Bonaventure and other projects that interweave many different strands of urban activity with indoor pedestrian streets and atria. The Maison Alcan joins a restored historic hotel and greystone houses on Sherbrooke St to the reticent but entirely modern glass and aluminum-clad headquarters behind by means of a glazed atrium. Market Square (Saint John, 1983) is another important architectural conservation and infill project, and provides further evidence of Affleck's urban sympathies.

General note

Raymond Tait Affleck, architecte (Penticton, C.-B., 20 nov. 1922 -- Montréal, 16 mars 1989). Il fait ses études à l'U. McGill et à Zurich, en Suisse. Il commence à pratiquer seul en 1953 et, en 1955, s'associe pour former l'agence Affleck, Desbarats, Dimakopoulos, Michaud, Lebensold, Sise, qui devient, de 1958 à 1970, Affleck, Desbarats, Dimakopoulis, Lebensold, Sise, puis, en 1970, ARCOP Associates, Architects and Planners.

Son agence participe à plusieurs projets importants, de St John's (Arts and Culture Centre, 1967) à Vancouver (Queen Elizabeth Theatre, 1955), mais Affleck est surtout connu pour sa participation à des réalisations montréalaises comme la Place Bonaventure (1964-1968), la Place Ville Marie (1956-1965) et la Maison Alcan (1983), qui remporte le Prix d'excellence en 1984.

Le souci d'Affleck pour la qualité de vie dans un climat nordique se manifeste clairement dans sa conception de la Place Bonaventure et dans d'autres projets qui relient les diverses activités urbaines par des rues piétonnières intérieures et des atriums. La Maison Alcan, rue Sherbrooke, incorpore, au moyen d'un atrium vitré, un hôtel historique restauré, des maisons de pierres grises et un siège social ultramoderne revêtu de verre et d'aluminium. Le Market Square (Saint John, 1983), autre exemple de conservation architecturale, illustre là encore les affinités urbaines d'Affleck.
