THE NEW DESIGN
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.

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.
