This February, Toronto’s Beach neighbourhood will be infused with colour and vibrancy by a series of one-off art installations for the inaugural Winter Stations competition. Artists, designers and architects will transform the utilitarian lifeguard stations along the east beaches into wintertime public art, aiming to celebrate one of the city’s most underappreciated and underused winterscapes.
Launched by RAW Design, Ferris + Associates and Curio, Toronto’s Winter Stations design competition received over 200 submissions from around the world. The winning submissions will be built along Kew, Scarborough and Balmy Beaches in the heart of the Beach community, broadly located south of Queen Street East, between Woodbine and Victoria Park Avenues.
Location: The Beaches, Queen St East (between Woodbine & Victoria Park)
