Jury comment:
"The amphitheater has become an icon in the transformation of the riverfront precinct in Trois-Rivières, providing a new identity for the city. Using the simplest of geometry and the lightest of touch, the architects have created a memorable place for performances. The jury admires the precision of its distinct floating roof. Night lighting and the use of bright colour make the building a beacon for spectacles and performances at the water’s edge."
