The artistic experience at Merillat Centre For The Arts begins way before you enter the building. This finely crafted pedestrian walkway has successfully integrated with the surface parking lot. With its brick-paved surface, lines of trees and streetlights on each side, one can hardly tell he is indeed walking inside a parking lot. This depressed walkway has justified the positioning of the centre. It creates a vista to the building, making its composition more attractive and powerful. Saarinen would have appreciated it.
