dc.descriptionThe south elevation, frontal view, showing the mid-section; [Canada's first management school, founded in 1907.] In 1998 Hanganu (with Provencher Roy et Associés) won a competition to recycle the previous HEC building in Montréal into the regional centre of the Archives Nationales du Québec. Inaugurated in the spring of 2000, the new complex is remarkable for its seamless integration of old and new architecture. Retaining most of the buildings on the city block site, including the beaux-arts style HEC building (constructed 1908-1910) and the Jodoin residence (constructed 1870), Hanganu created within them a functional and aesthetically pleasing array of interior spaces using modern and traditional materials and abundant natural light in the public areas. The design received accolades from preservationist groups and earned the architect yet another Prix d'excellence from the order of architects of Québec.
