Gilles Saucier graduated from the School of Architecture at Université Laval in 1982. Soon after, he established the Montreal architectural firm Saucier+Perrotte Architectes, a multidisciplinary practice internationally renowned for its institutional, cultural, and residential projects. Since 1990, he has been a visiting professor and an invited critic at several Canadian and American universities. As design partner, he is responsible for the design integrity of all projects, with specific attention given to architecture’s connection to geology and the landscape. In 2004, his firm represented Canada at the prestigious Architecture Biennale of Venice. In 2014, Gilles Saucier and his partner André Perrotte were the first recipients of the new Prix du Québec for design and architecture, the Prix Ernest-Cormier. They are also the recipients of the 2018 Gold Medal from the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada. Beginning in 2002, the Canadian Center for Architecture began archiving a large selection of drawings and models produced by the firm.
