Snow Strings — Toronto, Ontario
My Role in the Project:Co-Author
Project Type:Landscape, Installation, Renderings
If Sand and Water constitute the essence of beach in the summer, then it is Snow and Ice in the Toronto winter. We wish to harvest Snow and Ice as major building ‘materials’. Through embracing snow’s exceptional performance and quality towards light and heat, the installation offers unique and unprecedented experience in this winter beach. Constructed by simple being of PVC pipes and intertwining woven strings, a lightweight framework would be erected anchoring the lifeguard station as the substrate for the winter Snow to build on.
