Submissions are now open for the 2021 Warming Huts: Art + Architecture Competition. This call for entries is open to architects, students of architecture, landscape architects, interior designers, artists and industrial designers who have a proven portfolio of design work.
Three teams will be selected for a warming hut or art installation to be placed along the River Trail located on the Assiniboine and Red rivers in Winnipeg, Manitoba. A jury will select the winning designs based on their creativity in the use of materials, providing shelter, poetics of assembly and form, integration with the landscape, and ease of construction.
Weather in Winnipeg during the months of January and February can be extremely cold with temperatures reaching below - 30ºC. Teams are encouraged to engage the effects of solar radiation, wind chill, and the constantly shifting landscape of the snow-covered river. The depth of the ice on the Assiniboine and Red River at the end of January can be as deep as 1 meter thick.
The deadline for submissions is October 6, 2020.
