Calgary Opera Community Arts Centre
The Calgary Opera Community Arts Centre will be a historic addition to the culture landscape of the stampede grounds in Calgary. As part of the new vision for the grounds, it will be a prime component of the Youth Campus at Calgary Stampede Park. While the building is designed specifically for Calgary Opera, it has been carefully designed to be adaptable to a wide range of other arts groups including the youth programs of the Calgary Stampede Foundation. The acoustical design has been a key consideration in a building with a wide range of uses requiring careful coordination of the architectural design with all related engineering disciplines and the acoustical consultant. The image for the building takes the setting and context into account considering the history of the Victoria Park, the Rundle Ruins and the Calgary Stampede Youth Campus.
