Roy Thompson Hall - 60 Simcoe Street, Toronto, Canada

Arthur Erickson and Mathers and Haldenby
Date Built
Corner of King Street West and Simcoe Street
A circular hall built for the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the Mendalson Choir.  It is named in honour of Roy Thompson, founder of the Thompson publishing corporation, in gratitude for a donation of $4.5 million towards the $57 million cost of construction.  The building features a pipe organ built by Gabriel Kney and a Yamaha CF-2 concert grand piano from the estate of Glenn Gould.  Concerns about the acoustics of the building led to renovations in 2002.
