Claude Cormier + Associés

Claude Cormier's work celebrates manmade nature. Landscapes are constructed, and we believe they should look the part. He is deeply committed to the specific qualities of each site – its natural conditions, its cultural history, its sociology, its politics. Claude Cormier's firm wants to translate each unique situation into a bold and pleasurable design that will connect with people physically, sensually, and playfully with the objective of wakign our audiences up and forcing them to take a fresh look at their surroundings.

''Our work may be artificial; it’s also anything but fake.''
