Toronto is getting a Japanese hot spring by the lake this winter
It might be the dead of winter, but that doesn't mean you should avoid Toronto's waterfront, especially since it's going to be filled with interactive art installations soon.
The third annual Winter Stations Design Competition is back. From February 20 to March 27, eight installations will transform lifeguard stands on Kew, Scarborough and Balmy beaches (between Woodbine and Victoria Park).
This year's theme was catalyst and in an open design competition, entrants were encouraged to think about how their work would transform the winter waterfront as well as how their materials could be reused in the future.
Along with Asuka Kono and Rachel Salmela's Japanese hot spring-inspired installation called I See You Asjiyu (lead image), here's what you can expect to see by the water next month.
"Winter Stations 2017 delivered, once again, gutsy and lyrical transformations of ordinary lifeguard stands," said jury chair Lisa Rochon in a news release.
Winter Stations' jury chose five winners and invited groups from the University of Waterloo, the University of Toronto and Humber College to participate as well.
