Warmhut - 2017

From Warming Huts at The Forks

Team: The team for WARMHUT is formed by the four studio instructors: Eduardo Aquino, Chad Connery, Terri Fuglem, Liane Veness; and the 41 respective students from the foundation years: 8 Architecture Masters Preparation students, and 33 Environmental Design ED3 students). ---- A sauna is a heated small room or building, designed as a place for people to experience dry or wet heat sessions in order to refresh themselves. They often pour water on hot stones and this procedure produces wet steam. Sauna users often bathe or wash themselves in cold water as part of the procedure. The history of saunas goes back to several hundred years, especially in the culture of northern people. Several sauna types emerged, depending on the culture of the groups of people who use them. WARMHUT is a proposal for the 2017 edition of the Warming Huts Festival, at the Forks, in Winnipeg, to take place in the Winter of 2017. The idea is to set a collaboration between the four architecture option foundation studios together in one project, facilitated by the respective foundation instructors: Eduardo Aquino, Chad Connery, Terri Fuglem, and Liane Veness. Typically the Warming Huts Festival proposals have explored an impressive array of imaginative possibilities, without, however, producing what essentially the festival proposes: a hut that is actually warm. Our starting point is to conceive a truly warm hut, inspired by a sauna structure, a typology coherent with the Northern climates and Northern cultures. Our inquiry will explore technologic sustainable ways to advance an effective system to survive the cold weather of the frozen surface of a river of the harsh Northern winter.
