The Forks un­veils three win­ning warm­ing huts

Winnipeg Free Press - - CITY / BUSINESS -

THE Forks kicked off its 10th year of warm­ing huts by un­veil­ing this year’s in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion win­ners along with in­vited artists and spe­cial projects on Fri­day at The Forks Mar­ket.

This year’s com­pe­ti­tion re­ceived a record 219 sub­mis­sions from in­ter­na­tional artists and ar­chi­tec­ture groups, of­fi­cials with The Forks said in a re­lease.

The sub­mis­sions were re­viewed by a “blind” jury, mean­ing ju­rors had no back­ground in­for­ma­tion on who sub­mit­ted the de­signs or where they were from.

The jury, con­sist­ing of ex­perts in both the arts and ar­chi­tec­ture worlds, chose three win­ning huts:

• Hover­box, Si­mon Kass­ner and Wilko Hoff­mann at NAICE Ar­chi­tec­ture in Ber­lin;

• Weather­men, de­signed by Hae­mee Han and Jaeyual Lee from Jae­mee Stu­dio in Jersey City; and

• Hut­tie, de­signed by Jen­nie O’Keefe and Chris Pan­coe from Win­nipeg.

The Forks will also host Nor­we­gian ice mu­si­cian Terje Isungset, who will carve mu­si­cal in­stru­ments out of river ice and per­form on them in a spe­cially de­signed stage struc­ture called Pavil­ion Sub-Zero.
