It will comprise a multidisciplinary performance space with professional quality multimedia post-production and projection facilities, a music laboratory, 3D animation spaces as well as a large, light-filled atrium, outdoor spaces and an amphitheatre for well-known events such as the Festival of Culture and Doors Open Toronto.
