Mirror Cloaking - 2015

From Warming Huts at The Forks

Team: University of Manitoba ---- Using the concept of one-way mirrors and polished stainless steel panels to create a mirror box, skaters will perceive the warming hut as part of the winter landscape, yet closer inspection will find that the hut appears to reflect the surrounding. As skaters walk into the hut they realize that the one way mirrors provide the previous scenery of winter. The design plays with the idea that the enclosed structure become transparent and visitors can still find warmth within an "open" space.
