The Warming Huts: An Art + Architecture Competition On Ice competition is intended to provide design teams, both local and around the world, an opportunity to put forward their ideas for shelter and art. While no theme will be specified for the competition, the design teams are challenged to push the envelope of design and art. The huts should motivate the public to use the skating trail, and challenge users to form their own opinions and understanding of the meaning of art and architecture.
Each team will submit a single entry. The huts are to provide a space for skaters, skiers and strollers to put on their equipment, or simply to rest. The huts will be taken off the ice at the end of each season and stored for use in future winters. In time, The Forks hopes the collection of warming huts will provide users of the trail with a unique mixture of designs that exemplify the boundless possibilities afforded by creative design.
