Jack Diamond built a very good opera house in Toronto (pictured here), and now his firm has been chosen to build the Montreal Symphony’s new concert hall. Everyone plays to type in their coverage: The Gazette‘s story concentrates on the (much higher than expected) price tag; La Presse notices that locals didn’t get the gig. I’m just happy when a good orchestra gets a good room to play in.
