Withrow Common, a new event space that’s an initiative of the Canadian National Exhibition Association, is located on the west side of the Queen Elizabeth Building complex. The 2,675-square-foot venue, originally constructed in 1957, was renovated before reopening in February. Designed by architects Page & Steele Inc., led by designer Peter Dickinson, the multi-purpose gallery space references its mid-century Modernist architecture roots with a clean, simple, and contemporary look. The occupancy for the gallery space is 200, regardless of the configuration.
