Winter Stations are temporary art installations built in and around the lifeguard chairs at the Toronto beaches with the intention of bringing some vibrancy back to the beach. Every year the Winter Stations International Design Competition selects a new theme that the artists respond to with their installations. This year’s competition theme was migration. Humber’s Architectural Technology, Industrial Design and Interior Design students collaborated to design, build and install a design called Ground Squared. The design connects to the theme by prompting its viewers to reflect on our impact on the environment by using plastic as representation of the wasteful culture that we have grown accustomed to. The student’s intentions are to make viewers think about the environmental impact we all have that could potentially lead to climate change and eventually environmental refugees. The competition provided the students with an out of classroom collaboration opportunity and provided real-world experience in the field.
