Gerardo PérezPartner, Urban Planner, M. Arch. OUQ
Fascinated by the permanent metamorphosis of existing geometries, Gerardo Pérez composes and recomposes spaces that are fluid and harmonious. Benefitting from a double training in architecture and urban planning, he has been working as a designer in both fields for 25 years, in Mexico and Québec. He joined Provencher_Roy in 2016 and contributes actively to the firm’s success, in the development of numerous large-scale projects, such as the Place du Portage III complex transformation, Hélène Desmarais Building – HEC Montréal construction, and proposal conceptualization for many competitions.
A graduate of sustainable development and environmental design management at Universidad Iberoamericana Puebla in Mexico and holder of a Master’s from Université Laval, with specializations in land-use planning and regional development, Gerardo Pérez has a multifaceted vision of urban planning parameters. He excels particularly in the rehabilitation of urban landscapes and the conceptualization and composition of new configurations. Above all, human comfort and well-being guide the aesthetic orientation and malleability of the projects he creates.
Gerardo’s versatility leads him to become involved in a wide variety of contexts, including the multi-residential sector (Symphonia Pop, Domaine du Cloître Phases I & II, Grace Dart site reconversion, Les Jardins Dorval, Imperia Condominiums, Ateliers Castelnau, Le 1750 Cedar); health care field (Montreal Heart Institute, Hôpital de Verdun); and transportation sector (Gates 1 & 3 expansion at the Montréal-Trudeau International Airport, Vendôme metro entrance and tunnel linking to the MUHC, Passerelle Savane).
