THE WINTER STATIONS/2018 ARE GOING ALL-POLITICAL ON BALMY, KEW & ASHBRIDGES BAY BEACHES

<In 2017 the Winter Stations drew quite a crowd to the Beaches neighbourhood>

The Winter Stations international Design Competition is now in its fourth year. Come February 19th, lifeguard stands at three beaches will be transformed into large-scale, public art installations, until April 1/2018.

The theme this year is ‘RIOT: violent disturbance, uproar, activism and uncontrolled feelings – a large or varied display.’ Quite a challenge, but pictured below are the winning designs.

<“Make Some Noise!!!” – HAMBURG, Germany>

<“Nest” – TORONTO>

<“Obstacle” – UNITED KINGDOM>

<“Revolution” – TORONTO>

<“Rising Up” – GUELPH, Ontario>

<“Power to the Wind Station” – ROTTERDAM, Netherlands>

And the pièce de résistance –
