Batoche in DETAIL

Batoche in DETAIL

DETAIL magazine is an issue based publication devoted to a specific constructional theme and provides a comprehensive treatment of the subject. For many professionals, DETAIL is one of the world's most influential architectural publications. Imagine our excitement when we were asked to contribute our work for Batoche to the online database.

Recently, AZURE Magazine wrote an article about an interactive, outdoor interpretive interpretive environment developed for Batoche National Historic Site (Parks Canada), in Saskatchewan, Canada. For Form:Media and sister company Ekistics Planning & Design, 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.

Ekistics and Form:Media in Landscapes/Paysage

Ekistics and Form:Media were well represented in the Fall 2016 issue of Landscapes-Paysages, the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects’ (CSLA) quarterly publication. The theme of this issue was ‘Time’—a matter that informs all of our projects, whether we’re investigating and interpreting a site’s history; considering the physical effects of time on the landscape; programming a site and understanding how a space will be perceived at different times of day or over the course of the year.

Rob LeBlanc, John DeWolf and Sandra Cooke have each contributed an article to the issue, which can be viewed here.

Fort Anne—from plan through execution

Fort Anne—from plan through execution

Earlier this year, Chris Crawford and the Ekistics architecture team were awarded a contract to renovate Fort Anne's administrative quarters, to make improvements to the overall site, and design a new facilities structure. This project is an outcome of Form:Media’s Interpretive Action and Investment Plan for Fort Anne National Historic Site.
