Skybox - 2014

From Warming Huts at The Forks

Team: University of Manitoba, Faculty of Architecture ---- Skybox creates the visual emersion of people against a background not normally considered, the sky. Winnipeg's trademark aspect is its winter weather, and Skybox aims to create a mesh between the transforming weather conditions and the community. Purposefully placed reflective material covers the interior space to procures an illusion of the visitors sitting amongst the changing winter skies. Skybox embraces the current generation's fascination with social media by creating a photographic opportunity amongst the changing skies. Through the process of uploading images with the tagline #skybox, Winnipeg's community can interact with and promote the Fork's River Trail on an international scale.
