Toronto Winter Stations Competition Reveals Winning Designs
A steam-emitting canoe, a faux fur-lined dome and a transparent sauna are among the seven winning designs of the second annual Winter Stations competition. Come February, the interactive art installations will decorate the edge of Toronto’s shoreline.
Launched last year by the architects at RAW Design, the contest invites anyone to revamp a lifeguard station into a temporary pavilion in an effort to encourage Toronto residents to enjoy their snowy winter landscape. This year, artists and designers were asked to respond to Ontario’s harsh winters under the theme Freeze/Thaw. Here are a few of the winning designs.
The seven structures will be installed around lifeguard towers from Woodbine to Victoria Park Avenue in Toronto, starting February 15, 2016 until March 20.
