Greetings, readers! Thanks for your patience after my long absence due to personal obligations which I won’t go into details. To mark the occasion, I want to showcase this gorgeous group of wooden huts by Canada’s Patkau Architects, designed to provide shelter for ice skaters in Winnipeg.
Each plywood structure was cut from a pattern and bent to form a conical shape with a triangular base that tapers to the top. Spatial intimacy is created by clustering the shelters together from the harsh winds. More after the break.
