2002

In 2002, DMA participated in an international architectural competition for the design of Montreal's Symphony Hall, on the site of the Îlot Balmoral site. In addition to the 2000 seat concert hall, the programme included the construction of a 20 storey office tower and the integration of the dance conservatory. The three functional elements were organized around an urban square facing on the west side of Bleury Street, effectively integrating the Imperial Theatre into the complex. The site was also bisected by a pedestrian pathway crossing from south to north, which helped to form new connections between the different areas forming the Quartier des Spectacles.
