Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts

The Four Seasons Centre for the performing arts opened in June 2006 at a cost of $150 million.  Architects Diamond + Schmitt made use of glass, steel, reinforced concrete and black brick cladding to create a play of rectangular solids and voids.  Emphasis was placed on acoustical quality over all other elements.  The site is situated across from Osgoode Hall, next to Toronto Sheraton Centre at the intersection of Queen Street and University Avenue.  The R. Frasier Elliot Hall, with approximately 2100 seats, is the central focus point of the building.  The 5 storey atrium lobby known as The City Room lights up the street like a lantern during performance nights, creating a dialogue with University Avenue.
