The National Music Centre will not only be unique in Canada in terms of collections and programming, but will also provide Calgary – and Canada – with another architectural landmark. Designed to be an iconic piece of architecture, the National Music Centre will draw not only music lovers but also design buffs from around the world.

The King Eddy

With a history of bringing people together under the banner of music, this former "home of the blues" was a natural choice for the site of NMC.

The Process

An international call, 66 respondents, 5 finalists and a showdown at the Grand Theatre made for an exciting architectural competition for NMC.

The Team

With Allied Works Architects at the design table, CANA constructing, Haley Sharpe designing exhibits and great internal project staff, the NMC team is building the future.
