Simon Jones

Project manager

Simon is committed to transdisciplinarity principles, sensitive to the ecological approach (at an individual project level as well as at a group level) and to the consistency in the representation and tectonic expression in practice as much as in education. His approach is to see each challenge as an exchange and learning opportunity. Simon graduated from Waterloo University in architecture in 1993. His journey allowed him to view architecture from other view points, including construction work at home (Ottawa, Canada) and in architecture work overseas (Dublin, Ireland). Since 1998, Simon works in sustainable development/ecological architecture in Montreal. Working at Pearl Poddubiuk et associés architectes (l’OEUF) since September 2008, Simon has worked on projects of different scopes; from residential houses projects to residential community development projects. In his earlier work, Simon took part in the conception of numerous institutional, residential and recreational projects integrating sustainability principles. He thought a 2nd year design workshop at McGill University from 2005 to 2008. During that period, he was also an academic mentor, representing McGill for TEAM MONTREAL, a group of students who participated in the design-build of a solar house project in the context of the “Decathlon solaire” contest in 2007. He has been teaching at Montreal University as a lecturer the ARC6844 “Détails et integration” class (2006, 2007, 2008) and ARC3640 « Architecture Verte » class (2010). He has been part of the Canada Green Building Council’s academic committee since 2006.
