The MaRS Centre’s spectacular four-storey, 62-foot-high glass atrium welcomes visitors entering the building. Natural light floods this stunning, contemporary space, which is anchored by the original brick façade of the old Toronto General Hospital. A blend of historical and modern architecture provides the perfect backdrop for events ranging from symphony performances and exhibitions to lectures and receptions.


Located on the lower concourse, the auditorium is a single-level, multi-purpose room with approximately 4,700 square feet of usable space and a maximum seating capacity of 350 people. A contemporary and warm space, the auditorium can be configured to suit your needs. Partitions are available to divide the room into three separate spaces. Portable risers can be used to create theatre-style seating. Multiple ceiling rigging points allow for easy mounting of stage lights and other equipment.
