Dalhousie Arts Centre

The Dalhousie Arts Centre, at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, contains a number of theatres (including an outdoor rooftop theatre), an art gallery, classrooms, and a sculpture garden. It remains the premier performing arts venue in Halifax. It was opened officially in November, 1971, and is also home to Dalhousie's Fountain School of Performing Arts.

The striking modern architecture was done by C.A.E. Fowler & Company (Charles Fowler) of Halifax, with significant contributions by the Japanese educator Junji Mikawa, who worked for Fowler at the time. The interior was mainly by Andy Lynch, who would later have his own firm in the city, and who drew inspiration from the work of Alvar Aalto.
