Award-Winning Engineering: Structural Design of Avon Theatre in Stratford

Innovative structural design involved using a compression ring between the radial arch ribs of the roof to reduce distortion caused by uneven snow loading. This allowed the architect’s vision of the interior space to materialize. Twenty-six years later, this engineering masterpiece would be cited in support of the award of the Engineering Medal to Mr. Hershfield by the Association of Professional Engineers of Ontario.
