The TELUS Centre for Performance and Learning is the culmination of two decades of planning and design to build a new home for the Royal Conservatory (RCM). The unique hybrid of teaching, rehearsal and performance promotes the intersection of student, professional and public life, and allows the RCM to deliver its educational and public programming locally and worldwide. The project involved the historic restorative and adaptive reuse of two Victorian masonry buildings and the addition of a major new pavilion housing practice studios, classrooms and the 1,135-seat Koerner Hall.
