Fox Fernley Landscape Office (FFLO) has revealed its competition-winning transparent sauna in the Beaches district of Toronto
The scheme was one of seven winners in Toronto’s second ‘winter stations’ competition.
Now in its second year, the contest – open to artists, designers, architects and landscape architects – sought proposals for temporary structures ‘able to withstand the rigours of Toronto winter weather’.
FFLO’s sauna was chosen from 378 submissions and invited participants to embrace the festival’s Freeze/Thaw theme.
Built from timber, the immersive art installation features tiered seating and transparent walls which allow passers-by to get a glimpse of the bathers within the sauna.
Other beach structures include an upturned canoe, a community fire place and a wind shelter inspired by the natural formations of frost.
All the designs will remain in place until May.
