I am an independent researcher and designer interested in the unseen structures of reality: spatial modulations, timescapes, smelll fluxes, collective memory, mindscapes and architectural models of mental states. My work spans across various mediums and takes place in the fields of URBAN DESIGN, ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING and NARRATIVE ARCHITECTURE. I was awarded a B.A. in Environmental Design (Université du Québec à Montréal) with a minor in Architecture (University of Strathclyde, Glasgow UK), and a M.Sc.A. in Planning / Urban Design (Université de Montréal). My thesis (written in French) is about the power of the smells to trigger various spatio-temporalities in the environment. I am pursuing a doctorate in Philosophy / Cognitive Science at UQÀM on the subject of the spatiotemporal perception shaped by the olfactory memory in order to develop a comprehensive compendium and intervention tools for the architect, the planner and the urban designer wishing to add the dimension of smells to their concept.

I am a member of Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (MIRAIC), Association Francophone pour le Savoir (ACFAS), and Quebec Association of Urban Designers (ADUQ). ORCID #0000-0002-4745-9391

I am always looking for creative teams, partner(s) or clients i can grow with. If my expertise draws your attention, please contact me: natalie.bouchard[at]gmail[dot]com
