Toronto Hot Docs Film Festival features “Integral Man” this week about the late Jim Stewart a successful mathematician who spent a decade and a small fortune building Toronto’s Integral House, considered by many one of the city’s best performance spaces.
“After Euclid, Jim Stewart is the most published mathematician in the world”, says the Hot Docs description. Integral House reflects his two obsessions, curves and music. It is a stunning architectural gem of subtly curved wood and vast, evocative spaces.
The WMCT held a memorable concert in Integral House in 2014 to raise funds towards its 10th Career Development Award, which was a live competition won by Charles Richard-Hamelin.
Shannon Mercer, soprano, and Steven Philcox, piano, performed.
