From Chinatown to the Annex, Riverdale to Kensington, and Little Italy to Cabbagetown, Toronto is a town best explored one neighbourhood at a time. But the Beaches, situated along the city’s waterfront, is ahead of the curve when it comes to offering Torontonians and tourists ample reasons to visit their end of town multiple times every season.
During the summer months, this neighbourhood is the city’s top destination for sandy sunbathing. Now thanks to the Winter Stations Design Competition, visitors and locals have a reason to celebrate Toronto’s waterfront landscape during the cooler months of the year.
On display from February 20 to March 27, installations from five internationally renowned artists and three student artists from the University of Toronto, University of Waterloo and Humber College were created based on the theme of catalyst: converting one form or substance into another.
Lisa Rochon, Design Jury Chair of the Winter Stations, said in a press release that visitors are able to touch and feel their way along the beach, experiencing luminous shelter from the wind, warming waters for their feet, and designs that celebrate the Canadian nation of immigrants.
Check out this sneak peek of this year’s designs, then bundle up and go to see them for yourself before it’s too late!
