The new Tom Patterson Theatre is designed to stand as an attractor, and is positioned to draw people to the City of Stratford, to the Festival, along the banks of the Avon River, and through the gardens. 


From the outside, the building will glitter like a seductive jewel, a magnetic prelude to the delight and joy of the performances within. An undulating, shimmering bronze veil wraps the theatre in petals of warmth and light. Once inside, the curvilinear design creates quiet folds—eddies where one can wait for a loved one, engage in quiet conversation, or savour a contemplative moment sheltered from the current of activity. The design presents a unified whole, while at the same time enabling each programmatic element—the lobby, café, and Forum—to have distinct experiences nestled within.
