Winterstations 2016

Last year I forgot about the extreme Winter temperatures once I had a good reason to be outside in the ridiculous cold. So I was really looking forward to checking out this year's edition of the Winterstations competition so see what the winners came up with. Today JLo and I lunched and then wandered down to Kew Beach to scope out the installations.
'Flow' by Calvin Fung and Victor Huynh. A wooden reinterpretation of ice crystals.
'In the Belly of the Bear' by Caitlind Brown, Wayne Garrett and Lane Shordee. This domed sitting space featured a fur lined loft. It was so cozy and such a nice juxtaposition of hard and soft and light and dark.
'Steam Canoe' by OCAD University. Beautifully constructed wooden shelter.
Fire pit installation to shield visitors from the cold by architect Douglas Cardinal.
When you live in the heart of the city, you forget to look around and admire a simple beautiful Winter day. It's further enhanced by an interesting and interactive outdoor art experience. Check out the Winterstations on until March 20, 2016.
