plywood forms grouped in the snow make shelter for skaters in Montreal

A flock of plywood forms in the middle of a frozen river? It is not a beginning of some fiction novel, but a real architectural addition to the Canadian winter. The team at Patkau Architects have given form to a long lasting need of people in Winnipeg to find shelter in the freezing -30 degrees and sweeping Arctic winds. Grouped together like a herd of buffaloes and turning their back to the wind, these leightweight shelters can be moved in the speing and reused come next winter.

Well done Patkau team!
