Entry Description

The new Tom Patterson Theatre is designed to stand as an attractor, and is positioned to draw people to the City of Stratford, to the Festival, along the banks of the Avon River, and through the gardens. The curvilinear design creates quiet folds—eddies where one can wait for a loved one, engage in quiet conversation, or savour a contemplative moment sheltered from the current of activity. The design presents a unified whole, while at the same time enabling each programmatic element—the lobby, café, and Forum—to have distinct experiences nestled within.
