Scope and Content

This project series documents the first phase of development for renovations to the Stratford Festival Theatre in Stratford, Ontario in 1988. The office identified the project number as 8806.

Conceived with Thomas Payne as the partner-in-charge, this project consisted of the master plan for future renovations to the famous tent-shaped theatre. The proposed renovations included a new, larger lobby, improvements to the entrance and arrival area, landscaping and the addition of a marquee space. The plan divided these renovations into several phases, the last of which proposed the addition of a new museum space. The realization of this project began in 1994, and was completed under a different project number (see project series AP056.S1.1994.PR14 in this fonds).

The project is recorded through drawings and photographic materials dating from on or around 1988, with one drawing from 1995. The drawings include sketches, presentation drawings, plans, elevations and sections. The photographic materials consist of an aerial site photograph and studies of the project model.
