Canada concert hall prepares for opening

Montreal’s $260m concert hall, designed by local firm Diamond + Schmitt, is scheduled to open on September 7th 2011.

Located on the Place des Arts,  a cultural square in the city’s downtown area, the building is clad in honey-coloured Quebec beech and floor-to-ceiling glass.

While providing seating for 1,900, the concert hall is designed to have an intimate feel – the space from the stage to the last row of seats is just 23 metres. A big sound is also a priority, with acoustics provided by Artec.
