The Emerging Professional Award demonstrates the CSLA’s commitment towards landscape architects in the early stages of their careers.
Katerine Beaudry (2018)
After a brief career as a cultural and corporate event producer, Katerine Beaudry went on to become a landscape architect (Université de Montréal) and an interior designer (Collège Lasalle). In 2012, with a passion for design and driven by her inclusive vision of landscaping, she founded Ni conception, an agency specialized in landscape architecture and interior design. The firm’s holistic approach sets it apart as it focuses on the synergy among professional designers to create universes that complete and balance each other. The sharing of common goals and values ensures broad consistency between different projects, both in terms of landscape and architecture. It produces a dialogue, an alliance in favour of both site and project. The firm has clearly distinguished itself in 2013 with its winning proposal (Débâcle) in the Plage de l’Est (Montreal) competition, developed in close collaboration with the Ruccolo + Faubert architectes Inc. firm (architecture component of the project). Katerine is currently acting as project manager and designer on institutional projects. She devotes her free time to her 2-year-old son.
