Warming Huts v.2014: An Art + Architecture Competition on Ice
Once again the Warming Huts v.2014: An Art + Architecture Competition on Ice has been a huge success. This competition, endorsed by the Manitoba Association of Architects, invited architects from all over the world to submit proposals for warming huts online at www.warminghuts.com.
After receiving over 190 entries the jury blindly chose three submissions that best “push the envelope of design, craft and art.” This year the three winners are Canadian, with two of the winning entries coming from Toronto and one from Vancouver. In addition to the three winning open submissions, there will also be one hut from a separate University of Manitoba competition, one from the local invited architect Étienne Gaboury, and one hut from Kelvin High School’s drafting program.
Every year the architects push the boundaries in terms of inspiration, design, and materials used. There was no theme for this year’s competition which produced a diverse set of winning warming huts.
