Winter Stations Design Competition (Feb 15 – Mar 19)

This blog is a repost of information from

As we learned this past year, during the winter of 2015, even record-cold temperatures cannot turn back Torontonians from the Beach. For 2016 we return with an expanded second annual Winter Stations exhibition to celebrate Toronto’s winter waterfront landscape.

This year we are expecting to include up to thirteen lifeguard stands across Balmy, Kew and Ashbridges Bay beaches located in the heart of the Beach community, south of Queen Street East, between Woodbine and Victoria Park Avenues. These utilitarian structures are to be used as the armature for temporary installations which will need to be able to withstand the rigours of Toronto winter weather. The exhibition is to run February 13, 2016 until March 20, 2016.

This is a single-stage open international competition, welcoming artists, designers, architects, landscape architects and all those that defy labels to submit proposals for Winter Stations’ temporary artwork installations.
