Who

After completing a Bachelor’s in Architecture from the University of Montreal in 2013,  I picked up tree-planting work as a desire to try something new. Through a few years of grueling work in the forest, I fell in love with British Columbia and moved to the charming community of Rossland. My time here has been a reflection on my creative desires and a confrontation to pursue them.

My work is influenced by nature, light, geometry, science, and a wish to create experiences of marvel for people paying attention. Driven by passion and perhaps a bit of an obsession to challenge myself, I play with any medium necessary to make what idea I have in mind, with a proficiency in digital design and fabrication. My projects always have in mind sustainability, functionality and effect on others and their environment.

When I am not geeking out and creating, I am usually outside somewhere, exerting some kind of physical effort, juggling with musical instruments and dancing to weirdly intricate sounds. Probably naked, too.

Hi, I'm Antoine Marcheterre.

Nice to meet you!
