The MLC Centre is one of the most unique buildings in the inner-city commercial district of Sydney. It was designed by the accomplished American architect, Harry Seidler, who helped create a series of other well-recognised and progressive buildings around the city. The MLC Centre exhibits Seidler's preference for modern and minimalistic designs, using distinctive angles and innovative concepts. Seidler's buildings are a complete contrast to the Victorian-style structures that can be found in the centre of Sydney, and even the modern commercial constructions cannot match the originality and personality conveyed in the architecture of The MLC Centre.
When the MLC complex was constructed, it replaced an old building of The Theatre Royal (which was the second building of this theatre). At the time was a very controversial development. The Theatre Royal is now part of the MLC complex, and remains Australia's oldest theatre and hosts some of the world's most desired performances, including Broadway-style musicals such as Cats or The Phantom of the Opera . There are many reasons to find yourself in the MLC centre, and for the very best experience of this venue, combing shopping, dining and theatre. Address: corner of King and Castlereagh Streets, Martin Place, Sydney, NSW, 2000.
