Exploring Our Senses With Winter Stations At Woodbine Beach, Toronto

Winter Stations is a single-stage international design competition held annually in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Participants are tasked with designing temporary winter art installations which incorporate existing lifeguard towers spaced strategically across the city’s Kew and Woodbine beaches. The structures (not in use in the wintertime) must not be ignored in the design and can be used as either an armature for the installations, a central feature, or otherwise linked to the installation.

The Winter Stations 2020 theme is Beyond The Five Senses. How many senses do we have? And what do they tell us about the world that surrounds us and our place within it? When we think of our senses we commonly refer to sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. But we now understand there are many more, such as our sense of balance and proprioception. Our senses interact and overlap to provide us with a picture of our environment and can inform how we interact with it.
