Roy Thomson Hall

The building to the left with its pond and patios is Roy Thomson Hall, one of Canada's premier concert halls and home to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. This circular building with its curvilinear honeycombed glass canopy was opened in 1982 and was designed by renowned Canadian architect Arthur Erikson with Mathers and Haldenby. In the background you can see the CBC building in the centre and Metro Hall (government services) to the right. It is quite an interesting block on King St to explore.

Visited Toronto quite a few times before Passports became the norm. ALWAYS had a good time with Molsons and friends.

I didn't get to enjoy Roy Thomson Hall when I lived in Toronto sadly, though I did know it and the area. Nice to know more about it, thanks.
