Sydney Harmon Hall

Wide and Universal Theatre

Sydney Harman Hall, the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s new F Street venue, opened in October with dramatic fanfare. Located in a new 11-story office building, Harman Hall is distinguished by a three-story glass bay that projects eight feet over the sidewalk below. The glass-enclosed lobby (pictured here) engages passersby along F Street and envelops the theatre itself. Clad on the outside in an opaque shell of Venetian plaster, the theatre virtually floats in the space, in acoustic—and aesthetic—isolation from its surroundings.

Architect: A.J. Diamond of Diamond and Schmitt Architects, Incorporated, Toronto
