Located in the heart of Winnipeg’s East Exchange District, a National Historic Site, the Manitoba Centennial Centre (MCC) is home to some of the province’s most beloved cultural landmarks and performance groups. SvN, together with PSAstudio, are leading the Manitoba Centennial Centre Master Plan to redevelop the Centennial Centre based on the future needs of the arts and cultural community.
The Centennial Concert Hall features some of the most significant cultural attractions in Manitoba, thriving as the performance venue for the country’s first professional ballet company, Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, and the Manitoba Opera. The MCC also includes the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre, Artspace, the Manitoba Production Centre, and the Warehouse Theatre, defining a dynamic cultural hub. Attracting 950,000 patrons each year, the MCC facilities have played host to thousands of world-renowned artists and groups, and showcased hundreds of luminaries, festivals, and important community occasions.
SvN and PSAstudio are working with a collaborative planning consortium assembled by the Manitoba Centennial Centre Corporation Development Committee and Board of Directors. Together, they will design and estimate the cost of refurbishing existing facilities, recommend new infrastructure and support the linkages within the Exchange.
