Centre de Arts de la Confédération

Opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 1964 as Canada's National Memorial to the Fathers of Confederation, the Centre is an outstanding example of an institution dedicated to the arts. The extensive cultural complex includes a theatre, an art gallery, a library and a memorial hall. One of a number of arts centres erected in Canada in the 1960s and 1970s, the building was distinguished by innovations in its acoustics and stage design. With its monolithic outward appearance and extensive terracing, the Confederation Centre of the Arts is a notable example of "Brutalist" architecture in Canada.

Inauguré par S. M. la Reine en 1964, le Centre est le monument national du Canada en mémoire des Pères de la Confédération. Il demeure un exemple exceptionnel d'établissement destiné aux arts et se compose d'un théâtre, d'une galerie d'art, d'une bibliothèque et d'un mémorial. Faisant partie d'un ensemble de centres des arts construits au pays dans les années 1960 et 1970, cet édifice innovait en matière d'acoustique et de disposition de scène. D'apparence monolithique et possédant de nombreux espaces en terrasse, le Centre constitue un spécimen remarquable d'architecture brutaliste au Canada.
